[Reading Writers] How to be a curious reader


What are some great fantasy books that are actually worth reading—and do “must read” lists help or hinder us as readers? Andrew Peterson, musician and author of The Wingfeather Saga, joins me discuss this question and more in the second part of a two part interview on today’s episode of Reading Writers.

In this episode, you’ll hear

  • The role of the whim in choosing what to read;
  • How reading lists can hinder you as a reader;
  • How to protect yourself from distraction; and
  • What we really think about Amish Romance and paranormal teen romance
