Recently I asked Schindler about what she was reading. Her reply:
My reading tastes really do run the gamut. I’m an old lit major; when I was in school, I read everything from Beowulf to Ursula K. Le Guin. I still love my old classics (and often reread my fave Jane Austens). Currently, I’m getting into graphic novels (Daniel Clowes’s Patience and Joe Hill’s Locke & Key).Visit Holly Schindler's website, blog, Facebook page, and Twitter perch.
I’ve also been drawn to writing and reading books that contain older POVs (my novel Miles Left Yet focuses on three characters who reside at the Granite Ridge Retirement Community—and take a road trip together in a vintage Mustang). So I was quick to snap up the book Anderson Cooper and Gloria Vanderbilt co-wrote (The Rainbow Comes and Goes).
In addition, my independently-released work has tended toward the shorter side as of late—I’m releasing one short story a month throughout 2016 in my Forever Finley Short Story Cycle (you can view more on that here. So many of my reads are shorter lately, too: short stories by Alice Munro and Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout.
