I'm a reference source junkie. You should see how many reference books I have!

Excellent!

I ought to incorporate a "best reference sources" page into my future website plan. I, too, am a junkie.

News Flash: There is a new edition of the Chicago Manual of Style! I rely on this reference book heavily, and my copy of the 14th edition is full of tape flags. Now I'll have to find everything all over again!!
