The first was written by Algis Budrys, and is called Writing to the Point: A Complete Guide to Selling Fiction, which has some good points about story construction, and manuscript preparation in it. It's a very small book and a quick read.
Another quick read which I got out of the library was The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett, which is a short novel about QEII finding a mobile library while she was out recapturing her dogs. The Queen borrows a book, and starts in on reading in wholesale fashion, and the book describes what happens next. Humorous.
