9. Bird by Bird (Anne Lamott)
I’ve had Bird by Bird on my tbr list for years, and I even own a copy of the eBook. Since this book kept getting pushed back on my list, I finally snagged the audiobook and read it! This book is about writing, but it’s not just for writers. I felt like I was sitting with the author, most likely over coffee, and listening to her lessons about the world, told through writing. Her view on the inner world of a writer made me feel like she’s been inside my mind and heard my thoughts. It’s funny, dry, sometimes shocking, surprising, and sarcastic.
