Welcome to your GrammarBook.com e-newsletter.
The Blue Book of Grammar and Punctuation is a perfect match for teaching English to young adult ESL students.
The quiz subscriptions on GrammarBook.com were just what I was looking for in a resource; not to mention how much time I will save.
Your e-newsletter helped me improve my craft. I was just a struggling writer; now I'm an editor-in-chief.
Spell Well, and Excel
Take care that you never spell a word wrong. Always before you write a word, consider how it is spelled, and, if you do not remember, turn to a
dictionary. It produces great praise to a lady to spell well.
—Thomas Jefferson to his daughter
If there are spelling and grammatical errors, assume that the same level of attention to detail probably went into the gathering and reporting of the
