Hone Your Craft: Build a Bibliography

The Art of Fiction
In March I can’t believe it's May already I did a seminar/workshop for fiction and nonfiction writers called Write From the Start, on the importance of first paragraphs and the problems that show up there and are most likely to recur throughout a piece of writing. One handout was a bibliography, which I was just reviewing and thinking wow, it's really important keep this as a living document that gets updated with each new find. Here's a partial list with descriptions to get you started.

On Craft:
 Reference Books:
 The Associated Press Stylebook and Libel Manual
The Careful Writer
The Chicago Manual of Style
The Elements of Style
Webster's New World College Dictionary
Webster's New World College Dictionary

This is just a partial list send along your faves!
