    I am very grateful for today’s theme and for reading reviews of books about the writing craft . Thank you, Michelle 🙂

    Gosh that brought back some memories. I remember carrying around the “AP Stylebook” and Strunk and White’s “The Elements of Style” in college. I’m going to check out “The Art and Craft of Feature Writing” since that’s really my love. I wasn’t familiar with that one.

    Also, I just wanted to say thanks for putting this blogathon together. I have learned more in the past week than I think I’ve learned in the past 10 years, and I’m lovin’ every minute of it!

    Michelle, you will also find the AP Stylebook (complete with plastic spiral binding), Elements of Style and On Writing Well on my shelf. I’ll have to revisit Plotnik’s editing book. Thanks for your list…and the WordCount blogathon. It’s hard to read books when you’re we have all these blogs to sample!

    I just figured out from someone else’s blog (http://dgonz15.blogspot.com/) that you have theme days – are these posted somewhere?

    Thanks.
