I am reading like a fiend. Working on a peer’s MS and trying to stay caught up on my fiction reading list.
I had to go to the nonfiction section of the library last week…it was so weird. All those numbers on the spines (involuntary shudder).
No it’s not that bad. I went to the nonfiction section because I’m supposed to be working on a grammar critique, and while I was an ace at grammar in college, things can get a little fuzzy with time. Also, there are so many different opinions when it comes to grammar.
So, to my husband’s disbelief, I brought home The Comma Sutra. COMMA! It’s not the book you’re thinking of. Also, I brought home Eats, Shoots, and Leaves. My head is spinning from the forcing myself to read a book with no plot line, but I feel much more confident that I’m not making my punctuation preferences up.
Also, it’s fun to read Eats, Shoots, and Leaves with a British accent in your head.
Here are a couple online references I found helpful for a quick overview:
And the always helpful Nathan Bransford has a great post on a general
(non grammar) revision checklist.
