As an author I am always reading. I especially love to read writing books, reading and learning about my craft at the same time. I recently just finished How to Write Science Fiction and Fantasy by Orson Scott Card. This is a very practical and straight forward writing book. I have some other books that go more in depth about world building and such, but this one is a great fast read that will make you stop and think about your writing in a very rational way. It really did help me with a current story that I am self editing, and that is the goal of any writing book, to help you with your own work. Since this book is quite helpful and easy to use, I give it 5/5 stars!
