  TWO DAYS IN A ROW…..Yesterday morning with coffee mug in hand and reading my subscribed newsletters, there was my name, I had won Still Life by Joy Fielding from Karen over at Bookin’ With Bingo.  I was so excited since I have started to make my surgery “To Do List” and thought this one is definitely going to the hospital with me.
  Then today…once again…same routine, except this time I almost choked on my coffee.  Rachel, who has accepted the torch from J.Kayes Book Blog, and is now  Home Girl’s Book Blog has passed on this award to me.  You really should stop by her blog….she has a unique style of posting that has never failed to make me smile.  I so take these awards seriously and appreciate them.  To think just a few months ago, I was stalking blogs, reading the reviews and wishing to join in the fun.  And now, here I am, accepting and being accepted into the nicest and friendliest neighborhood of blogs. Thank you again Rachel !!  Now for the blog and it’s criteria:

Today’s question:
In honor of National Grammar Day … it IS “March Fourth” after all … do you have any grammar books? Punctuation? Writing guidelines? Style books?
More importantly, have you read them?
How do you feel about grammar in general? Important? Vital? Unnecessary? Fussy?
  Confession time…so please don’t tell anyone (lol)….but throughout my education, I found some aspects of grammar difficult. So I am thinking, I should have kept those books. But with the technology of today who needs reference books? However, I do feel it is very important. I think that all the positives of technology there are quite a few negatives for the youth of today. I know when I hear those that are our future talking, I cringe. Maybe I am just old fashioned but I find it sad that some appear not to be able to put 2 sentences together. So yes…I feel it is both vital and important.

Last week I didn’t go on my treasure hunt for new blogs, and not sure if I will be able to do it next week (have appointments every single day to start the preop procedure), I am definitely doing it today. I noticed on Home Girl’s Book Blog (http://j-kaye-book-blog.blogspot.com/) newsletter, there were quite a few blogs new to me so, Thank you Rachel for sharing your blog roll.
