8 Types of Books Every Publishing Person Should Read. The Genres We Most Often Forget About—and Why That is a Huge Mistake
If you work in publishing you’re probably a reader. And you’ve probably been stuck in a reading rut at some point in your life. In this session you’ll be challenged to make the next eight books you read be from the eight different genres presented. You may hate some of them. You may tolerate most of them. No matter what, though, you’ll gain a new appreciation for the larger world of reading/publishing that is out there. You’ll stretch yourself personally and professionally as we talk about how to maximize your time actually reading. As a publishing professional you might make a few new book friends and the worlds of genre, style, syntax, and purpose will be more open to you than ever before.
