I finished Lynn Truss’s (that apostrophe there was discussed in the text - apparently that’s the correct way of doing it these days) book today (Buy Here). It’s a book about punctuation for pedantic people who know they’re being pedantic.

This book reminds me a lot of Anne Fadiman’s book Ex Libris (Buy Here).

I decided that I would like to keep a better handle on all the books I read in a given year so I decided I would start a Book Journal. I bought the journal at Mountain View’s East / West bookstore and proceeded to go to town.

Based on the content of Truss’s book I produced the following outline of punctuation points I always have trouble with (link forthcoming). I always had (have) such issues with that pesky comma!

The really interesting bit was that while at Dana Street a troupe of amateur belly dancers showed up. It was a real hoot and completely unexpected.
