I just started a new book this week for my ward's book group. It's the book that I chose, and I've been waiting for months to get around to reading it. Toward the end of last summer, a friend of mine did a review of it on her blog, and it sounded interesting and even amusing to me (it wasn't the first time I'd heard of it). So I signed up for March's book group, and indicated that this would be the book I chose. Then, not knowing any of this, my sister bought me the book for Christmas. I've been chomping at the bit to get around to it. I really must be a nerd of ginormous proportions, because I'm just so excited to read it. I've only made it through the foreword and the preface so far, but I love it! The book:
Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation, by Lynne Truss.
Yeah, I've got issues.
