my food site is weber_cam

June 11, 2004 is a site that shows, among other things, how often a particular web address (blog, link, etc.) has been linked by others, providing some indication of its popularity. There's a nifty sub-category on it called Book Talk. This is a list of books ranked by popularity. Pretty high in the list is Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation by Lynne Truss. It's a fun book about mistakes people like me make ALL THE TIME. I thought it'd be a good read. Its It's an aid I desperately need.

The reviews of books from Technorati are done by people who aren't professional and usually have absolutely nothing to gain from their review. They're just providing free opinions. So it's not the authoritative NYTimes book review. Who cares. Everyone gushes over this book. But one of the best reviews I found was by Josh Abraham at Yankee Pot Roast. The piece is absolutely hilarious. It will brighten your rainy Friday.
