So it's decided then. I've narrowed down the reference/writing books I want to get.
The Elements of Style 50th Anniversary edition, which comes out in the UK on 28 Nov 2008 (thanks to Adam over on Author's Echo for pointing me in the direction of this one.
The Merriam-Webster Dictionary of Synonyms and Antonyms, although I'd like to see if I can get a hardcover copy.
And finally the one that I really can't wait to get my mits on: Techniques of the Selling Writer by Dwight V. Swain.
