Eats, Shoots and Leaves by Lynne Truss - $9.99
Anyone who’s seen the joke online, “Let’s Eat Grandma!- Punctuation Saves Lives”, knows the importance of a properly placed comma.

1984 by George Orwell - $12.99
Although a classic, the sci-fi novel, 1984, covers a wide range of contemporary concepts such as “Big Brother” and “Newspeak”.
