Giant books at Hay.

Wondering where the apostrophes are? Read no further. Internet grammar is my pet peeve: the misuse of apostrophes, the word "teh" for "the" and "lol" to indicate laughter. The joke is over, people. Grow up and type like adults. (I know language changes, but it shouldn't happen in less time than it takes Apple to update their OS.) (via)
I went to see The DaVinci Code the other night; since when is Tom Hanks doing voiceover for animated features? Oh, you mean it's not a cartoon? Could have fooled me. I haven't heard so many clichés since, well, since I was a kid watching Josie and the Pussycats.
Read anything good lately? I'm looking for books to take to Scotland on vacation next weekend. Preferably with their apostrophes in the proper places. (I am one to talk, having misplaced plenty of apostrophes myself. When I reread an old manuscript the other day, I discovered I'd typed the word "twin's" repeatedly. That is wrong as often as "parent's" is.)
