books : national punctuation day



Dear Readers:

I just found out that it is National Punctuation Day, although I'm sure one day is not nearly enough for us. You can read more about it on NowPublic.

Sincerely yours,
Cindy

This reminds me of how terrible I am at commas! I just add them everywhere, and forget it! lol

I mangle the English language terribly, but I'm trying to improve.

My grandmother, who is French, but learned English correctly and hasn't forgotten one iota of her lessons was my constant reminder of how to write properly.

But I had a rebellious streak in college and make some deliberate mistakes now and again.

yikes! it's one of my favourite things about leaving comments - not over thinking my commas and semi-colons : )

and yet there is something sweet and special about a national punctuation day!

you really are such a rebel michelle.

paul, you are so right on both fronts. eek, not sure about my punctuation in that sentence, or this one ;). i better get 'elements of style' out NOW, although it never seems to help me. i'm often distracted by maira's illustrations.

Love it! Let's all celebrate the day by making some funny dangling modifier jokes. :)

I used to be so good at punctuation and grammar in school...I'm not sure what's happening to me now. It must be age!

great photo - so bold - and it made me realize that i rarely see books with red covers. i wonder why - it's such a compelling color.
