    Good to see Ken’s 10% Solution near the top of the list! And bravo–that’s an impressive reading year.

      Actually, Patrick, thanks to your LJ, I found Ken’s book. I also rate the books I read, which I chose not to make public, but I gave The 10% Solution 9.5/10. I’m using it as we speak to cut my 111k manuscript down, hopefully, to around 100k. I’m down to 108k, and in the process, finding all sorts of clunkiness.
