+Doreen Hill Here's an article on "used to." You're right that it doesn't make sense if you try to use the meaning of "used" and "to." But that's just how English works. Often these kinds of phrases are called idioms. http://www.quickanddirtytips.com/education/grammar/used-to-versus-use-to-and-other-listener-questions

As a science fiction reader and former scientist, I'm excited about this new book from my friend +Lee Falin: Science Fictioned

The book "takes ideas from cutting-edge, scientific research papers and turns them into science fiction and fantasy stories."

Introduction
I'm Grammar Girl and so much more.
Bragging rights
Founder of the Quick and Dirty Tips network, creator and host of the Grammar Girl podcast. Since they call this section "bragging rights," I'll mention that I was once a guest on the Oprah Winfrey Show, my first book was a New York Times bestseller, and my audiobook was nominated for an Audie award. My book "Grammar Girl Presents the Ultimate Writing Guide for Students" was named to the International Reading Association’s 2012 Teachers’ Choice book list.
