My Thoughts

Grammar is my biggest issue as a blogger. As I am sure many of you have noticed from reading my blog posts I am not a good speller and punctuation? HA! Forget about it! (Sadly I even took children’s literature classes in college and they still did not help me much).

With that being said I could not turn down the chance to review the Glamour of Grammar by Roy Peter Clark.

This book has a nice and easy to understand. I enjoyed every word I was reading in this book. With chapters such as; befriend the lively verb to be, or Us the complex sentence to connect unequal ideas, I was able to relate some of the writing tools together that I needed. If you are like me and just need that little push to help you with your grammar this is the book for you! Now I am not saying that my grammar will improve just because I read this book but there will be some things I will think twice about while I am writing my daily posts to each or you. Hopefully I will pick something up that will better help you understand what I’m talking about!! LOL!
