If you’ve read this blog long, you know that I’m in love with words. And this section of the blog is devoted to my love of words. Here you’ll find my thoughts on what I’m reading, favorite authors, and my deep abiding love for used bookstores.
What is Mandy reading? I am currently reading Howard’s End by Forster. I have created a list of books I’d like to read in 2015. You can check out my progress here.

Biggest grammar pet peeves: using impact as a verb, forgetting the importance of adverbs, its/it’s (it’s not that hard, people), people who use “that” when it should be “who”
