Hello everyone! I’ve had my book blog for a while, and it’s about time that I hosted a contest! Anna Balasi of Hachette Book Group offered up a new book for a giveaway and I grabbed the chance.
THE GLAMOUR OF GRAMMAR
By Roy Peter Clark
Early in the history of English, the words “grammar” and “glamour” meant the same thing: the power to charm. Roy Peter Clark, author of Writing Tools, aims to put the glamour back in grammar with this fun, engaging alternative to stuffy instructionals. In this practical guide, readers will learn everything from the different parts of speech to why effective writers prefer concrete nouns and active verbs. THE GLAMOUR OF GRAMMAR gives readers all the tools they need to”live inside the language”–to take advantage of grammar to perfect their use of English, to instill meaning, and to charm through their writing. With this indispensable book, readers will come to see just how glamorous grammar can be.
