Blackboard Books Helps You with the Grammar You Don’t Think You Need - Page 2
The crown jewel of the collection, My Grammar and I…Or Should That Be Me?, is the one book that everyone who plans to speak, write, blog, e-mail, and post status updates (i.e., communicate in any way) should be required to, at least, memorize. Is it too much to ask that people sending messages know how to make them comprehensible? English is confusing; over 10% of English words are not spelled like they are pronounced. Homonyms leave writers with choices to make, and the choices are too often wrong (its/it’s,they’re/their/there, right/write). Not everyone knows where a hyphen, comma, apostrophe, ellipsis, dash, or semicolon belongs. My Grammar and I…Or Should That Be Me? clarifies these issues and teaches readers how to remember the rules when they write. It is totally unique, because that’s the only way to be unique, and it explains why.
We should have all learned everything contained in Blackboard Books, but aging memories or schooldays missed may render our knowledge somewhat hazy. There’s no reason adults can’t do what mom and dad commanded them as children, “look it up.” It’s so much nicer than looking like a moron and annoying the on-line community.
Bottom Line: Would I buy Blackboard Books? Yes, and I expect all my subjects to buy it as well; the set is inexpensive and is a quick and easy reference that supplements the facts with humor.
