Any Good Books on Writing and Blogging?

Hey all, I've recently taken my blog to the next level and i'm afraid my writing is not up to par or intriguing enough. Can anyone recommend me some good books on writing interesting articles or blogging?

Thanks!

P.S. I kind of prefer physical books but I don't have a problem downloading an Ebook.

Indeed. Amazon.com has some good books on this topic. Personally I'd recommend you to take a look at this one: http ://ww w.amazon.com/APE-Author-Publisher-Entrepreneur-How-Publish/dp/0988523108/.

Just FYI, it's written by Guy Kawasaki.

Don't just read books, read anything on the web, on the news or wherever then take the styles that work and dump those that don't

You get to learn something new and get a new writing style so double bonus

Joseph Sugarman's Advertising Secrets of The Written Word. It focuses on direct mail shots and old school full page text ads in magazines. but the principles still apply in the web age

Amazon.com is the bestseller of good books but do not only rely on books. Research online and you can find everything.

These recomendations helped me too, thank you. I would add: more reading on different topics give a blogger/webmaster more depth and credibility. One should read more outside the "comfort zone".

Another thing - I really like Zen habits blog and would like to see more like these. I suggest you get influenced by good blog writters to and try to follow their lead. What I particulary like: writting is "clean", with strong point, every sentance has a point or a meaning, blogger is honest and that's the key for me.
