What kind of writing resource books do you have on your shelf? How many?
I have one shelf dedicated to resource books. Mostly books on writing, but quite a few resource books on drugs, poisons, police procedures, baby names, travel, and body decomposition. My husband maintains that if he died under suspicious circumstances, I would be automatically arrested. He’s probably right. I do cringe when a story comes on TV about someone dying and the reporters point out that the police found books on poison or found out that the surviving spouse had visited sites about how to get false IDs. That’s usually told in a voice-over as the spouse is led out in handcuffs with a jacket over his/her head. It’s why I always tell my husband to be careful. Of course, I want him to be safe, but I also don’t look good with clothes draped over my head.
What do you have on your shelves? Do you have a favorite writing book or resource book? One of my favorite reference book is years old. It’s a text book called: Practical Homicide Investigation, Tactics, Procedures and Forensic Techniques.
