My Blue Plate Books purchase of the week, this week, was The Elements of Style by Strunk and White. This is one of the first books I bought for myself after my college graduation when, with dreams of being a plucky reporter, I took on writing the local beat in the dying days of the smaller of my hometown's newspapers.
That first hallowed copy, with it's garish hot pink an teal cover, is lost to time.
But I decided that a every real and serious author's personal library should sport this little book. And anyway, it was time for a reread. A brushing up. A clearing out of the cobwebs.
