Hi Folks! I'm looking for books on writing craft. Would you mind sharing your favorites?

In particular, I'm trying to find a really excellent wordsmithing book. I want to write extra-pretty paragraphs.

I've already read (and love):
-self editing for fiction writers
-the art of character (corbett)
-start your novel (pattison)
-the anatomy of story (truby)
-write great fiction--dialogue (kempton)

Thanks!!
