Eats, shoots and leaves by Lynne Truss.
This book I am reading for uni - and I was pleasantly suprised!!! It is all about punctuation - I learnt a little bit and it was a good brush up. It made me laugh so many times. Hard to choose a good teaser from it. But here goes
" Singular possessive instead of plural possessive (a list of misuse of apostrophes)
Pupil's entrance (on a very selective school, presumably)
Adult learner's week (lucky him)"
" Unintential sense from unmarked possessive:
Dicks in tray (try not to think about it)
New members welcome drink (doubtless true)."
The above examples of bad punctuation really made me laugh.
Next week I will be reading fiction again so don't give up on me yet!!!
