"The Fight for English: How Language Pundits Ate, Shot, and Left", by David Crystal. It's a history of the attitudes behind English prescriptivism and language purism. It's basically a book all about the history of Grammar Nazis and how silly they and their aims are. Really good so far.
Breakfast With Scot, by Michael Downing. As I expected, it's very different to its film adaptation. And though I'm not a huge fan of the author's style, as far as my tolerance for first person narrative goes, the novel has so far been fairly enjoyable.
