As you can tell I haven't done any of these weekly challenges in quite awhile and I'm not promising I'll be able to continue doing them either but here's today:
Writing guides, grammar books, punctuation how-tos . . . do you read them? Not read them? How many writing books, grammar books, dictionaries–if any–do you have in your library?
I’ve read a few different writing guides online just to see what they consider the “proper” way to write a review but I left the grammar books behind after I was through with school. I do have a dictionary but I rarely use it since http://dictionary.reference.com/ has a thesaurus and an encyclopedia as well as the dictionary.
My reviews are meant to be informative but also entertaining. Hence the pictures and videos, which in turn help me remember more about the book several years down the road. It’s like my brain can only store information so long and then starts dumping certain things, mainly what a certain book is about and whether I liked it or not.
*I’m a Weekly Geek! If you have read and reviewed any of the books I have posts on over at my other blog The Movieholic & Bibliophile, I would love for you to link to yours in the comments section. No matter how old!
