Essential Reading for Screenwriters Oct 26

Save The Cat, by Blake Snyder The scriptwrecked bookstore is now online!

I’ve created a special list of books that I believe every screenwriter should have in their collection. If you click on the link for each book, you’ll find reviews, descriptions and even a personal introduction by yours truly.

For those of you who are already familiar with the “Essential Books” (or are just more partial to things that spin) I’ve also set up a carousel of rotating reads at the top of the page. There you’ll find some other top rated screenwriting books that I’ve personally vetted and feel are worthy of your time.

Did I miss any of your favorites? Disagree with my picks? Let me know.

    The link to Essential Books appears to be broken. I’d love to view the list but can’t seem to get there. (Getting ready to order “Save the Cat!” but I need to know what else belongs in that box that’s not already in my library!) Thank you.

    Hi David,

    Sorry about that. I took it offline after having some problems with a flash app on the page.

    Here are two books I would recommend checking out:
