Flat Cat, Lydia, & Sampan

I would like more food in my bowl please Lydia has eaten it all!

Flat Cat xxx


I haven't read any of these! I will have to check out a few! Good list!


Nope, not a one. I'm not a big non-fiction reader, though I have to admit that I'm intrigued by the title of the grammar one.

Miss Understood

Eats Shoots and Leaves is on my bookcase too.

(I must say, I prefer the title with the punctuation in it!)


Interesting list, certainly. I'm unfamiliar with a few of them.


I have Eat Shoots & Leaves (what writer doesn't?)
and I also have King's "On Writing" by the way another good one is Terry Brooks "Sometimes the Magic Works" (it's mostly for fantasy writing but it's still a good read for authors.

Great TT


I've only read the Truss book--it was great!

My 13 this week is bookish quotes.


Yay for fixed commenting ;)

Oh my, I must be slipping - I only have Eats, Shoots and Leaves (as well as Talk to the Hand). I think this is two lists in a row where I've only one of the books on your list in my library.

Chairman Mao

Hiya, Flatcat! Sometimes you can find yummy smidgens of foodies on the counters...

hehehe! and *purr*

Thomma Lyn

Oh, MaoMao, stop that. Not everybody allows kitties on the kitchen counters.

*ahem, excuse me!* ;-D

That's a great list of books -- I'd like to read the one about Winston Churchill's early years and the one about Nicholas and Alexandra.

And I agree, On Writing is a very good read!

Happy TT, and thanks for visiting my blog.


From this list I have only read Stephen King's book, haven't even heard of most of the others. But you seem to have a quite eclectic bookcase...

Thanks for stopping by at my site.


I have 'Inside The Third Reich'... not surprisingly, I guess.


I just learned a lot about you at damozel's blog and these books tell me more. I've read 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 11, 12 and 13; not a bad score huh?
Thanks for visiting my food TT!


I don't know why I didn't read this on Thursday...I guess I'm hopelessly behind on READING blogs now that I am being at least a little big consistent on writing my own.

As a grammaphile, I enjoyed Eats, Shoots and Leaves. And I would like to recommend Woe is I:The Grammarphobe's Guide to Better English in Plain English, by Patricia T. O'Connor. I have bought several copies of both books as gifts for my geeky grammar-loving friends.

Stephen King's On Writing is in my library along with Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird. And every few weeks I get an e-mail asking me why I don't write a book or something...but I would rather blog and read books about writing than actually WRITE!

I have expanded my non-fiction reading considerably over the past several years and have many to recommend if you are interested.
