Omission of E

Words ending in e in the following consonant drop the e before a suffix begging with a vowel:

believe + er =believer
make + ing =making
love +er = lover
take + ing =taking
move +ing =moving

But there are some words that don’t change any e rather it stays like-wise:

dye + ing =dyeing
eye +ing =eyeing or eying  (both are correct)
age + ing =ageing  noted that e remains before except American English

A final e is retained before a suffix beginning with a consonant

engage + ment= engagement
hope +ful=hopeful
manage + ment =management
judge + ment= judgement (UK)  judgment (in America)

The final e is dropped in the following words

argue =argument
due =duly
true  =truly
whole =wholly

Words ending ee don’t drop before suffix:

agree = agreement; agreeing; agreed
free= freely
foresee= foreseeing; foreseeable
seed = seeing; seeded;

A Book Stall

A stall is a place where everything is sold.  A book stall is that sort of place where books, newspapers, pens, pencils, copies and magazines are sold. These stalls generally stand by the side of the railway stations, junctions, highway roads, big-markets and streets. These stalls serve those customers who want to read something to spend their time while going to their destinations. Different types of people gather there to buy books and stationery according to their tastes and demand. The readers search their intended books or materials to buy for their need of the time. Students, teachers and the job-seekers always keep connection to the book stalls so that they can have their necessary books and the reading articles in time. Anyway, a book stall is an important place for of all kinds of readers.

There were three friends in Europe. One day they got some meal. They told each other, he will get more meal than others who will dream a good dream tonight and tell nice story on it on the next day. Next day they started to tell their stories one by one.
