A picture book that helps kids learn punctuation? I'm a little curious as to how an author can manage this, :). I actually have not read shoots And Leaves. I wonder if it was intentionally titled to be similar to Shoots and Ladders. Ok, cheesy reference, but just got up, and I'm not a morning person. There, excuse out of the way. At any rate, I was quite pleased to see that Elements Of Style is in the collection. I'm taking English Comp II as a summer class, and my teacher recommended it. And the MLA Handbook is there, which is also neat. It's a dull read, but it's beneficial. I know there's even an APA handbook in the collection, though it's not precisely called that. I have a history paper due Monday, so I might just download that again. I can't find it, and I don't remember what it's called. Oh well. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Grandma Cindy" <popularplace@xxxxxxxxx>

Welcome, Rosie.

You'll fit right in. We have several singers, as well
as professional pianists, and, of course, many, many
book lovers. Ad lots of college students, both
undergraduate and graduate and those who have just
finished advanced degrees.

If you like grammar books, have you read Eats, Shoots
and Leaves? It's in the collection.

BTW, folks, the author, Lynne Truss, has written
another book, The Girl's Like Spaghetti: Why, You
Can't Manage without Apostrophes! This is a picture
book of 32 pages intended for ages 9 - 12. There's
also a picture book version of Eats, Shoots and Leaves
for grades 1 - 3 . It's smart of the author and
publisher to do that to help kids learn proper
punctuation.

Hey guys! My name is Rosie. I'm a brand new
volunteer, and I just added myself to the list. So I
just thought I'd introduce myself. I'm eighteen
years old, and I'll be a sophomore when I return to
college this fall. I'm a communications major, and
I'm auditioning to be a musical theater minor in
September. I've been totally blind since birth. I've
always loved to read; my parents couldn't take books
away from me. I was the odd kid that read grammar
books during my free time because I was fascinated
with the english language. Weird I know. I write for
pure enjoyment during my free time. Mostly, I write
poetry, but I also keep a livejournal. I also sing
and have perfect pitch. I'm a sister of Sigma Alpha
Iota, an all-women's music fraternity. I took four
years of private voice, sang in choir throughout my
high school and grammar school years, and I'll be
taking chorale this fall with this really awesome
professor (yay for awesome profs!) I'm blunt, open,
free spirited, and I make people laugh without
trying. I love people--even some that everyone hate.
Well, that's me in a nut shell. I'm looking forward
to working with all of you.
Rosie
