About This Blog

Don't get me wrong. It's not that I'm not on board with the whole ebook thing. I enjoy books in all their formats. But there is nothing quite like a bookstore with its neatly arranged shelves of books and artfully created displays of new arrivals, best sellers, and suggested reading. I especially enjoy discovering small, independent bookstores and have made it my mission to visit and report back on as many of these gems as I can. That is my focus, but there is really nothing that is off limits as long as it is about books or reading. Hope you enjoy my blog and come back often.

Notes From A Grammar Nerd

So maybe you don't really care about writing and grammer thats are problem not your's. Maybe the wrong use of a word don't really bother you. Maybe random Capitols or missing comas don't cause you concern. Your not one of those people who pay much attention to how a sentence is written. If theres errors to bad. You could care less. Its not something you really think about.

On the other hand, maybe errors like those in the previous paragraph drive you up a wall. Maybe you even had trouble making sense of it. Now, I'm not one to go around correcting other people's grammar unless I'm asked. Grammar nazis can be annoying. But your writing and grammar, like it or not, create an impression. In my last post I talked about the importance of reading. Now I'd like to spend a little time on its cousin, writing.
