I’ve just read Eats, Shoots & Leaves . There’s no excuse for my poor punctuation now. I was really impressed by the writing style of Lynne Truss who is bloody funny (I didn’t realise that a book on punctuation could be funny) and it really was a joy to read. And now I also know what an Oxford comma is (among many other things). You should read it – we have to take action before written english is permanently damaged.
