writing bones books and such

I was pulling together some stuff I thought was interesting, maybe like a list of books about writing that aren’t about writing. Like a different approach of the same…consider this an alternative to the usual grammar books and Writing Down the Bones and Stephen King things and etc. This is the other thing. I didn’t even read these to learn how to do anything. I just read them to read them because it interests me, I find it interesting in some perverse manner
