Book #35: Eats, Shoots & Leaves

Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation by Lynne Truss might be the nerdiest book I’ve ever read, but I enjoyed it. It is what it sounds like: Truss discusses various punctuation, though in a witty, British way, looking at its utility, importance, and change over time. She also throws in many examples of humorous errors and shows how punctuation is so important to meaning and clarity. It was a fun little book, though you’d have to have specific taste to enjoy it. (Also, the first book I’ve read on a Kindle in a while. I so love tangible books, but I got sucked into Kindle deals; when a book on my wish list is only a dollar for the Kindle version, it’s hard to resist.)
