Good Writing Books to Download or Purchase

Ok, first...getting the books the free and illegal way.
You're going to need to download this to download from piratebay: http://www.utorrent.com/ so get that first. Next since the package of Ebooks you'll be downloading is compressed into a rar you may need a more heavy duty extractor such as 7-zip: http://www.7-zip.org/download.html
Now you're all geared up to pirate, arrgggh! Recommended packages and books:

  1. http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/3358919/E-Books_-_Writing_novels_and_screenplays.rar
  2. http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/4524240/70__English_grammar_and_writing_books.rar
  3. http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/4489511/Writing_for_Journalists__2nd_ed.
  4. http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/4648754/English_for_Journalists_(Media_Skills)_3rd_ed.
Most worthwhile and essential books of the first package include: "On Writing Stephen King, "How to Write a Damn Good Novel" volumes 1 and 2, James Frey, and "A guide to writing novels and getting published" Bob Mayer.
The second package has much of the same books as the first, with more variety and focus concerning Grammar.
The third and fourth items on the list are books concerning writing for journalism, and although they focus on the aspects of writing non-fiction they contain valuable information on the mechanics of writing.

If you're looking to purchase (either for a hardcopy, or honor's sake). The Idiots Guide and Elements of style are not in the download packages, but highly recommended. Here are links to good books on writing:
