With holiday gift-giving upon us, what could you give to the writer, student, business professional, or English language learner in your world? I have three excellent suggestions: Word Tripper Tips, Rev It Up Reading, and a new book Metaphors Be With You.
|1. Word Tripper Tips
Consider giving the gift of accuracy—a practical subscription program that features Word Tripper of the Week for 52 weeks with the Word Trippers ebook included plus excellent bonuses.
A Word Tripper is a succinct way to explain the difference between word pairs that commonly get confused—affect vs. effect, accept vs. except, and many more. When people know the difference and use the words accurately, they feel more confident in their writing and look smart, too!
Place a word choice guide at their fingertips—instantly. Go to www.WordTrippers.com/gift

|2. Rev It Up Reading Program
Here’s a fabulous speed reading program that’s perfect for busy professionals and those who want to further their studies and careers. It was created by speed reading expert Abby Marks Beale, the author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Speed Reading and 10 Days to Faster Reading.
Various options are available. Go here for complete details.
|3. Metaphors Be With You: An A to Z Dictionary of History’s Greatest Metaphorical Quotations
Dr. Mardy Grothe presents a new compendium of the English language’s finest metaphors with a meditation on their beauty and necessity. This essential guide for writers, readers, and anybody in love with language breaks new ground with its use of QR codes. These codes take you to a corresponding database on the web, making this work “a living, breathing museum.”
Order it here or through Amazon or Barnes & Noble in time for the holidays.
