National Punctuation Day


by Catherine L. Tully

National Punctuation Day was Sept. 24th, which means I’m a day late on this post, but I thought the website was interesting enough to share anyway. Plus, there is a baking contest that goes along with this that you can still enter. That’s right–bake something in the form of a punctuaton mark and send in by September 30th to have the chance to win. That isn’t something you see every day…

This website has some good basic information about punctuation marks as well as a list of books that you can check out for more details. It’s kind of a fun site–worth a browse. Be sure to check out the section that has all the photographs of bad punctuation while you are there. It’s a scream.
