Over the Counter #479

What book caught my eye this week as it passed over the library counter and under my scanner? An older title this week, but I couldn't help but stop and leaf through it....

More Badder Grammar! by Sharon Eliza Nichols.

From St. Martin's Griffin:

"MORE missspellings! MORE badder grammar! MORE than 150 photos of laugh-out-loud funny signs from the creators of the smash-hit book (and Facebook group) I Judge You When You Use Poor Grammar.

After the success of her first hilarious collection of poorly worded signs—and with 430,000 members on her Facebook page—Sharon Eliza Nichols returns with an all-new assortment of the most ungrammatical, outrageous, and ridiculous mistakes ever put into print. Featuring actual photos of actual signs in actual locations, these billboard blunders are sure to delight grammar groupies, punctuation sticklers, and pretty much anyone who can read.

Whether you groan in frustration, shake your head in disbelief, or howl with laughter, this wonderful humor book will convince you that it's just a sign of the times."

(Over the Counter is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World. I've sadly come the realization that I cannot physically read every book that catches my interest as it crosses over my counter at the library. But...I can mention them and maybe one of them will catch your eye as well. See if your local library has them on their shelves!)

This is right up my alley! Used to love watching Jay Leno’s crazy signs & misspelled ads. Really missed that segment when he retired. So glad someone is continuing the fun.

Icewineanne - I had forgotten about that Leno segment! I notice them all the time driving to work.
