Series Sunday: Grammar Girl

Series Sunday is a new bookish meme hosted by yours truly, Literary Marie of Precision Reviews. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.

  • Read an installment of a series.
  • Post a review/recommendation on your blog, FB, Twitter, Goodreads, or Shelfari pages.
  • Share your review/recommendation by posting the link in the comments section below.
  • Include the title, author, and name of the series so that other Series Sunday participants can add the book to their TBR Lists.
My Series Sunday pick is Grammar Girl's 101 Misused Words You'll Never Confuse Again by Mignon Fogarty. She is the creator of Quick and Dirty Tips for grammar usage and better writing. I purchase most of her books and listen to her podcast for easy tips and as a quick reference tool. It is great for any editor, teacher, student or person wanting to understand words that sound alike but mean different things. Some examples in this particular book include:
  • Adieu versus Ado
  • Affect versus Effect
  • Beck and Call versus Beckon Call
  • Capital versus Capitol
  • Conscience versus Conscious
  • e.g. versus i.e.
  • Farther versus Further
  • Vain versus Vane versus Vein
Grab your copy for only $5.99 and check out the other Grammar Girl releases. They are worth every shiny copper penny!
