By the book

I’ve been thinking about beefing up my library of writing reference books. I do a lot of research online, and while I consider myself pretty good at separating the wheat from the chaff, there’s no substitute for the solidity of print.
Here’s a list of recommended books for writers. It seems too short, to me. But we all gotta start somewhere. How-tos are great, but without having an anthology or two of great writing to accompany them, we’re stuck with a semi-mechanical look at prose with little context for what great writing looks like.
