For all the grammar nazis out there (we all know a few of them), The Book of Unnecessary Quotation Marks will you bring you hours of fun, and probably a bit of frustration at people’s stupidity as well.

Although quotation marks are a pretty straight forward component to the English language, some people still haven’t quite figured out the proper way to use them. Or maybe they think it’s funny? While we’re not really sure what causes people to make some of the choices they make, the fresh brown “eggs” cover is enough to have us intrigued. The book was written by Bethany Keeley, and showcases the misuse of quotation marks on everything from signs and posters to restaurant menus. [Purchase]
