I read books primarily to learn, grow, and feed my curiosities. This means that I mostly read poetry and non-fiction books about great people, lifestyle, and business/marketing, and then, of course, there’s a great deal of multi-genre reading. Here are five books I love and why.
Ask any poet you know if they ever considered making a living from their writing and you’re likely to get an incredulous laugh in response. That’s because most poets—particularly the ones who have tried to do it—understand that the prospect of making a career out of their poetry is slim… well, very slim.
