NaNo 2020: Writing Book Recommendations

Today I thought I'd share some books on writing/resources.
The first link is a series of Thesaurus type books...for emotions, urban settings, rural settings, etc. I've got all of them so far (I believe there's another one that just came out or is due out soon) They're very helpful when looking for more specialized synonyms without needing to slog through tons of other information.
I bought each of mine off ebay through thrift shops so got them pretty cheaply. They're worth the investment for serious writers IMO.

Writers helping writers series: https://www.amazon.com/Emotion-Thesaurus-Writers-Character-Expression/dp/0999296345/ref=sr_1_18?crid=2GAHXTMTPC84P&dchild=1&keywords=thesaurus&qid=1600950304&sprefix=thesau%2Caps%2C405&sr=8-18

This link has more generalized 'how to write' books covering a wide array of things. Might be worth checking out ;)
