Books about Writing?

Writing books! Please recommend me some! I normally pick up writing advice and lessons from professors and my handy friend the Internet. So I haven’t really read a lot of them.

I picked up one from a Scholastic book catalog when I was in middle school, so I can’t remember the name of it off-hand, but I still have it around somewhere.

The only other one was Writing Magic, by Gail Carson Levine, which I only checked out from the library for an extended period of time.

I recently picked one up that was a little broader, talking about creativity in general. It’s Brain Storm: Unleashing Your Creative Self, by Don Hahn. I haven’t started on it yet, but it looks really good from what I’ve seen in the skimming I did before buying. We shall see!

So what books have you guys been reading that have helped you become a better writer? I clearly need to step up my game, and I would love it if y’all would help me do so. 🙂
