My Main Handy Reference Tome is Replaced

I’ve been an editor/writer, both in-house and freelance, for over 30 years.

There’s a handy space between the two printers (laser and colour inkjet) on my computer stand in which I keep my most-used reference book.

Well, today I realized I’ve been getting up and walking to a nearby bookcase to grab Stokes Birds way more often than I was reaching up for The Chicago Manual of Style.

Sorry, Chicago, but you’re being displaced . . . 🙂
