My favourite online bookshop sent me a new book today: The Elements of Style by Willaim Strunk Jr. and E.B. White. This little book has a very long printing history, it's been in print since 1918. The book is quite short, and it's a timeless, solid piece of advice for people who write. Although the book is about the English language, the principles of composition, form, and style apply to any language - well, any language I know, at least.

Oh, the 1999 edition is even available online, which is extremely helpful: The elements of style, by William Strunk, Jr..

And I bet I'll fret about the awful quality of this blog entry for years to come...
