That is an interesting statment...
Mystical silence... I like the sound of that...
My last book haul for... Hopefully a while? I'm so tempted to jump straight into Because Internet, but I'm also kinda sick (mostly due to the antibiotics 😂) and am not sure I have the brain.
I really enjoy linguistics and this book was so very much in line with my interests, exploring how internet culture has shaped and is shaped by language. I learned a lot of the whys behind internet language and informal written language. The fact that I recommended it to two people before so even finished is probably telling. Maybe too dry for anyone who isn't a nonfiction reader, but I'd still recommend it to pretty much everyone else.

My day just got a whole lot better 😍
While this book is full of information, it is a bit of a slog to read. I don‘t think that‘s anyone‘s fault. There‘s just so much ground to cover, and it can get a bit bogged down and boring. 🤷🏻♀️ It is a good resource, however, for learning about the evolution (which continues to this day) of the English Language. 😊
She still doesn't really understand the concept of sitting in a lap, but I did convince her to stay for about 60 seconds as I was reading about typographical emphasis
I don‘t often enjoy textbooks, but I enjoyed this one. Lerer has a conversational tone of writing that makes the subject matter less dense and more fun to learn. I highly suggest this, even if you aren‘t an English major or an English Ed major! 😊
