Grammar Question

Some grammar rules (and embarrassing mistakes!) transcend the uniqueness of different regions and style guides. This new International Grammar section by OnlineBookClub.org ultimately identifies those rules thus providing a simple, flexible rule-set, respecting the differences between regions and style guides. You can feel free to ask general questions about spelling and grammar. You can also provide example sentences for other members to proofread and inform you of any grammar mistakes.

I’ve been getting hammered on the Grammar portion of my Reviewer Score, so before I submit my next review I want to run this by you guys. What’s better: In Part One of this book or In Part 1 of this book Thank you

I would leave out "of this book." Everyone knows you're talking about the book. Unnecessary words don't add to the quality of the review. Just say, "In Part One, Jack shared with Jill."
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.


Grateful to get the opportunity to explore new books with those in the OBC.

I am a new reviewer here, scrolling through all these grammar posts and trying to learn how to write better reviews. It seems like it's a bit similar to learning a new language. Thanks for having the forum to help us learn the language!
