    Sharon Eliza Nichols created the Facebook group I Judge You When You Use Poor Grammar, which boasts more than 350,000 members and 7,000 photos of misspelled and ungrammatical signs. Sharon has been featured in theNew York Times and the Wall Street Journal and lives in Tuscaloosa, where she is a law student at the University of Alabama.

    Correct grammar and proper spelling can be a challenge, and their absence can be a source of gleeful humor to everyone but the victim of a bad grammar attack. How do you react to sandwich boards, road signs, laminated instructions, and other written missives that are just not exactly what their creator meant? If you've ever (gently) judged anyone else for their linguistic failures, if you find yourself guffawing about the frequent confusion between "incontinence" and "inconvenience," if you've ever been tempted to whip out your marker to add in or cross out apostrophes, and if you've refused to answer e-mails in which "your" and "you're" are used interchangeably, this book is for you. With pictures culled from the Facebook group by the same name,I Judge You When You Use Poor Grammar is a hilarious and eye-opening tour through restaurants and shops, through parking lots and along winding roads, and around the world.
