Book list is in...

According to a poll done by over at Writing White Papers, the top 10 books for writers are:

On Writing by Stephen King
The Elements of Style by William Strunk Jr and E.B. White
The Renegade Writer by Linda Formichelli and Diana Burrell
The Well-Fed Writer by Peter Bowerman
Bird on Bird by Anne Lamottt
If Your Want to Write by Brenda Ueland
On Writing Well by William K Zinsser
The Elements of Copywriting by Gary Blake and Robert W Bly
The Copywriters Handbook by Robert L. Bly
The Renegade Writer’s Query Letters that Rock by Linda Formichelli and Diana Burrell

So far, I’ve only read 2 out of 10. Think I’ll head over to Borders and see how many they have in stock. Wouldn’t mind reading Bird on Bird (read a review of it once and thought it sounded interesting). Also will look for Blake and Bly’s The Elements of Copywriting - I’m a bit clueless as to what copywriting is all about, so it might clear things up for me.

And while I’m at Borders I might as well read some magazines, drink some coffee, do some people watching, dream the day away…

I just looked up copywriting today on Wikipedia! I might have to invest in that book too.


there does seem to be a lot to learn.
