There’s a new book on the market by author Elyse Bruce called “Idiomation” that is really worth buying. Specifically, “Idiomation: Book I.”
The book’s description is as follows:
“Elyse Bruce digs deep into the history of 75 sayings, expression, clichés and idioms we hear in day-to-day conversations, and shares what they mean, where they came from, and who was the first one to say it. Available in traditional book form as well as in eBook format, this is the first in the series by the author of the Idiomation blog on WordPress.”
The Idiomation blog is one that my blog links to. I link to it because I think it is a useful resource for anyone who is interested in the origin of phrases, particularly writers. Of equal value is how the blog brings history to people in a fun way. Now people can pick up the book, hold it in their hands, read it over and over, and enjoy. Alternatively, they could buy it as a gift for a friend.
I don’t know about you folks, but it’s always fun to know something others don’t. Walking around with the knowledge a person gains from Idiomation is like winning at Jeopardy or Trivial Pursuit.
This book by Canadian author Elyse Bruce has already sold worldwide, with purchases being made in India as well as the US, reaching the #26 position in Kindle Books in India.
“Idiomation: Book I” is available at Amazon.com as a paperback or Kindle file.
