What are you reading?

I just finished a fun little book, which I had to do very early in the semester when I do not feel toooo guilty not reading for class.

Eats, Shoots and Leaves by Lynn Truss. It was delightful! The subtitle is: A Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation. No, really, it is a book all about punctuation. She makes you feel sorry for the apostrophe and appreciate its hard work; support semicolon usage; sing the praises of the comma; and other such punctuation points.

I also finished Blink. It was ok. Anyone else?

WoW! What a curious little read - the idea of such a book made me delightfully laugh in appreciation! But really, where would we be without punctual punctuation? This may be a stretch, but every symbol and mark amongst the letters is like every "God-moment" in our day: they are what cause us to pause, think, and realize Meaning; and they give significance and importance to the whole big picture of what we're in the midst of! Oh, that we may be "syntactfully apt" in our faith!
