A stylish hookup

Correcting the grammar of other writers is a universal high; being given a book to help do it is ecstasy.

Web editor says to me, “If you're going to start writing for the blog here and there, here's an AP Stylebook to help.” As I peruse its well-read pages, I begin to feel as if I may have found my new all-time-favorite book. Coming to the Alibi with only an academic writing background has left me hankerin' for some journalistic writing and editing knowledge.

As I lean in to kiss my new friend, I notice the filthy thumb streak caressing the side of the page edges. I am not this book's first lover.

If the Fake AP Stylebook (also my newest following on Twitter) was in book form, I believe it also would have a grayish-brown smear across its middle.
