Great podcast gets booked!

This book is assembled from the best of the Grammar Girl podcasts. She is funny and the book is great for high school students to doctors and professors.
A fun way to either learn from the beginning, or to be reminded.

Great Rehash

This is a bit of a rehash of her wonderful podcast, but Grammar Girl is always a pleasure to listen to, and I love being reminded about the rules. (I think I got those commas in the right places.) I highly recommend this book even if you've listened to everyone of her podcasts. She's engaging and a great listen. I use it at school with my kids.
