After my interview on NPR, I received a message from Jane Straus, a popular grammar writer and author of The Blue Book of Grammar and Punctuation. I hadn’t heard of the book before, but I was so glad to learn about it!
The book is excellent. It’s part tutorial and part workbook. The rules are explained really well and the voice is lovely. I’ve got a copy of my own!
Jane has a great grammar Web site, grammarbook.com. She features much content from the book, in addition to grammar quizzes, Youtubes and a blog of her own.
If there’s anything in particular that you should check out on the site, it’s the newsletter. I highly recommend subscribing.
Also, the next edition will feature an endorsement from me on the back cover!
Check it out. I’m so glad that I met Jane. She’s my Californian counterpart, and she knows her stuff!
