I've decided to treat myself to some books on writing this year.

So, what should I get?
I've heard of Strunk & White, and I also want to get a larger English-German dictionary as well as a thesaurus - I grope for synonyms so often, that's definitely necessary.

What would you suggest, which titles would you recommend, what would you avoid?

Does anyone have a good suggestion about British and American dialects and slang?
I know that's tricky, as colloquial language changes so fast, but it'd still be much appreciated.
The army is even more fun!
How about JgAusbZTerrH? Or VNAusbZentrBw?

Sometimes, I just love my language. Where else do you have words like Kriegsdienstverweigerungsrecht or Generalstabsdienstverwendungslehrgang. And then you can make words like
Generalstabsdienstverwendungslehrgangsteilnehmer and it is still a word that makes sense and might actually exist.
See why you should never play Hangman in German?
