Love It Or Leave It: Books About Grammar

by Trish

What are good books for grammar? I hear this question all the time. Glad to finally oblige and answer.

Grammar Girl’s QUick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing by Mignon Fogarty

Love It!
Great guide for writers who produce a lot of it on a regular basis. Nice breezy style, easy to understand, and if you subscribe to her podcasts, you get to hear Mignon herself wax poetic on a lot of these same topics. Fabulous! Get this!

The Elements of Style by William Strunk Jr and E.B. White

Love It!
The classic (50th anniversary edition featured here) book on grammar can’t ever be replaced (at least in my opinion). Best advice on writing, hands down. A must have for everyone’s shelf, even if you rarely write.

Woe Is I by Patricia T. O’Conner

Love It!
O’Conner has a great way of making grammar interesting. Her two books are worth a purchase, I think. I’ve referred to them countless times over the years and never tire of reading them just for fun!

Words Fail me by Patricia T. O’Conner

Love It!
Again, O’Conner’s books are worth their space on your shelf. Get both! You’re welcome!

Have a great weekend all!
