Unfortunately Ms.Reagan would benefit greatly from a course in basic grammar -- or a knowledgeable editor who understands basic principles of grammar. Her numerous grammatical errors hurt my ears. For one thing, the title should be "Who's the author ANYWAY," not "anywayS"." The "s" at the end of anyway is incorrect. One of the most basic principles is: "A verb should agree in number with its antecedent noun (or pronoun." She writes: "... mother and an uncle WAS interned..." That should be ".. WERE interned..." Another, similar error: "Amazon, Barnes and Noble, as well as Indiebound and other independent bookstores HAS it on their year-end Best-Seller lists." The sentence is awkward grammatically. Much better to have written "Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indiebound, and other independent bookstores HAVE it on their ..." Her awkward grammatical errors are most annoying - and distracting. This Nook Book is not worth the $4.63 that I paid for it. I will not buy another in this series.I would return this one if I could.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
