I’ve got a full day ahead of me, and for some reason I decided I should get up early and do laundry while I’m at it. Sure, it was time, but why oh why would you do that on a day like this? Stupid brain, you need a vacation, I think. Luckily I got just the thing in the mail the other day: Benjamin Dreyer’s book Dreyer’s English, which I’ve been looking forward to for some time. I read a lot about writing when I started writing the WordPress books for Wiley. English isn’t my native language, thus I wanted to gather as much information as possible, and just like everyone else I read Strunk’s The Elements of Style. Several times, in fact. I hope Dreyer’s Englishwill be a worthy successor. No pressure there, Benjamin…
