Free Book Giveaway Contest

What's better than the bargain's [sic] at Borders?

Free books that you can win thanks to Apostrophe Catastrophes! The folks at the Fake AP Stylebook have offered free copies of Write More Good to five of my readers. I received my free copy a couple of weeks ago and have been laughing outloud. To enter the contest, simply email me photos of apostrophe catastrophes that you find in the next few weeks. At the end of May, I'll choose five winners and put you in touch with Write More Good publishers to get your free book.

Unlike the chicklit featured in the photo above, Write More Good is certainly not destined for the Borders bargain section.

Thanks to my friend Jodi for sending this apostrophe catastrophe from the Borders in Stamford, Conn. No wonder that chain is going out of business.

Poor Border's! I think they have been lacking a lot of their upper management since they turned into a glorified garage sale. The sign is still sad, though!

Or is it "Borders" with no apostrophe? Oops!! :-)

This is probably why they filed for bankruptcy. Sad as it may be, how do you expect to run a successful book store if your employees can't even use the right grammar?
