The books look interesting. I will put them on my someday list. Meaning that right now I have an abundance of books to read and audio books to listen to.
I love "Eats, Shoots & Leaves". My mom was an English teacher and I grew up being required to use proper grammar. A plus was she would edit my papers. Somewhere in my collection of several thousand books, I have a first edition, in very used condition, of The Elements of Style. We had to use it as a style manual in both high school and college many, many moons ago.
