Comments on: "Top 3 Books For Writers" (27)

  1. Great book selection. All three are on my bookshelf. Must reads for any writer.

  2. useful
    should i ever
    become a writer 🙂

  3. Wow! Great list! Dear Bette, i would like to ask you a question. I dared to write a non-fiction book about my country, I certainly had it edited by a professional editor and now working on illustrations to it. I don’t know how good or not my book is but I wanted to try to send some book proposals to different publishing houses. Do you thin it’s wisdom? Or the self-publishing is a better choice? I would appreciate any advice.

    • Why not try both! Send out some queries to publishers; meanwhile start your self-publishing journey too. Self-publishing is a daunting task, but one that can insure publication of your work. In any case, enjoy your journey or journeys, Ann! 🙂 xo

  4. Thank you for sharing this, Bette. I am checking into “On Writing” now. 🙂

  5. Thanks for sharing, Bette. Anne Lammott actually lives in my area and she can occasionally be seen around town. I’ve never read her books, though, but I’m going to order Bird by Bird based on what I’ve read here. 🙂 xoxo

    • What a small, small world, Lauren. How exciting that you’ve got the author living nearby. 🙂 I can’t wait to read Bird by Bird. 🙂 Have a great week, my friend! xoxo

  6. I’ve read ‘On Writing’ a few times and always find new nuggets/inspirations in it … I like the look of the other two as well. Many thanks for sharing! Hugs xxxx

    • Thanks for sharing, Annika. <3 I'm right with you on King's :\"On Writing." Strunk and White's "The Elements of Style" has been with me for decades as a first-go-to when it comes to questions about writing and I'm sure looking forward to Lammott's "Bird by Bird," scheduled to arrive in my mailbox on Friday. Happy reading and writing, dear friend. xoxo

  7. Thanks for the recommendation Betty…hopping over… 🙂

  8. I left a comment on the blogger’s post. I love all three of these books. And I must re-read Bird by Bird because I read it long before I ever started writing.

  9. Great post Bette ma’am! ♥

  10. I’ve had Stephen King’s book on my shelf for ages. I really need to find the time to read it!

  11. Excellent list, Bette. I hadn’t heard of the Lammott book. It sounds like an interesting read. 🙂

Thanks so much for stopping by to join the conversation.
