Recommendations for Those Who Love English

Just popping in to tell you there are two new books I'm oh-so-ready to read. One is The English Is Coming! How One Language is Sweeping the World by Leslie Dunton-Downer. The other is Slam Dunks and No-Brainers: Language in Your Life, the Media, Business, Politics, and, Like, Whatever by Leslie Savan. Reviews of these books may be coming in this blog, but I couldn't wait to tell you about these discoveries. Use the widgets at the left to order them--easily.

Now, for a couple of books I've read that I can highly recommend: It was the best of sentences, It was the worst of sentences and Grammar Snobs are Great Big Meanies by

June Casagrande. The girl can make learning more about writing fun!

And for a quick read--one you can put into a brief case and read in snippets--try my Great Little Last-Minute Editing Tips: The Ultimate Frugal Booklet for Avoiding Word Trippers and

Crafting Gatekeeper-Perfect Copy.


The New Book Review is blogged by Carolyn Howard-Johnson, author of the multi award-winning HowToDoItFrugally series of books for writers. It is a free service offered to those who want to encourage the reading of books they love. That includes authors who want to share their favorite reviews, reviewers who'd like to see their reviews get more exposure, and readers who want to shout out praise of books they've read. Please see submission guidelines on the left of this page. Reviews and essays are indexed by genre, reviewer names, and review sites. Writers will find the search engine handy for gleaning the names of small publishers. Find other writer-related blogs at Sharing with Writers and The Frugal, Smart and Tuned-In Editor.
