The Millionth Monkey professional editing service has selected about 75 books on writing that it recommends to writers — regardless of their level of experience. We have read each of these books at least once, and in some cases several times. The list includes books on (1) the nuts and bolts of writing, (2) literary theory, (3) reflections of accomplished authors, and (4) some right-brain stuff. The list is on our Writing Tips page at http://www.millionthmonkey.net/writing-tips.html. (It’s near the bottom of the page, so keep scrolling.) Millionth Monkey (http://www.millionthmonkey.net) provides editing services for authors (fiction and nonfiction), publishers, scholars, web developers, self-publishers, and law firms.
