Booking Through Thursday: Manual Labor

Booking Through Thursday

Writing guides, grammar books, punctuation how-tos . . . do you read them? Not read them? How many writing books, grammar books, dictionaries–if any–do you have in your library?

I love to read writing books, how to write better, writing ideas, authors writing experiences... that kind of thing. The only grammar/punctuation book I've read is Eats, Shoots and Leaves which I LOVED and thought was hilarious.

I have lots of dictionaries... many of different languages too. I have Elements of Style from college. I haven't looked at it in years.... and the AP Manual book too, from college. I think we have a thesaurus kicking around somewhere. Maybe I should dust that off and look at it now and then?

  1. It's not surprising, I suppose, that so many bloggers who love to read also want to improve their writing skills. I use writing guides and those singled out in the original question as reference tools, but rarely read them for leisure.
