A lot of books get published each year. A few get read while the others are ignored.
In this blog I would like to present some book reviews of books I have read and feel are important enough for you to read also.
Feel free to suggest books which you feel I should review for you. I will consider them.
Recently our pastor has started a
series of messages on toxic emotions. So it is good to receive a book to review
on that subject.. Schreve calls them Runaway Emotions but it amounts to the

you ever had times of frustration? When things just don’t seem to go right?
Shreve offers you the truth that God knows and cares and has a reason for
allowing you to be where you are.

The first is a small one that has become a classic.
It is the basic Stuck and White, Elements of Style
Well, what do you know. It is still there.
The other grammar book I use is Grammar for Smart People by Barry White.
... That one exists also.
So that means I am using books that you can also. I highly recommend them to you. It is a painless way to recall what you thought you knew when you were being forced to memorize principles of grammar.
