    Sheri explains that she has been given an eReader, and she tells us the advantages and disadvantages of it.
    The advantages are:
    – It helps if you have bad sight, you can download books easily at any place, books are cheaper and you can read a lot of books inside a little gadget which don’t take many place.
    The disadvantages are:
    – You can’t browse easily to find out what you want to read again unless you write it, it turns out of battery while a paper book doesn’t. The last disadvantage would be that your hand might smell of plastic at the end.

    • mloredo Says:

      we say run out of battery, not turn out
      It is a very good comment and you use the passive tenses pretty well. I think you could improve punctuation. Read it again and let me know

    Sheri begin explained that she received an eReader and she told his advantages and disadvantages.

    Advantages – It’s light and you can download a book at anytime in seconds. It cost less than the hard copy versions and books are stored inside the little gadget instead of cluttering shelves. It’s better for the eyes than the monitor. The eReader has environmental benefits, but she do not know them.

    Disadvantages – She think that using this gadget her memory is changed, because it lack of the ability to turn physical pages, know how much you read. She do not like that if you want to return and saw something is difficult, because you do not know how many pages you have to pass. She do not like some bugs that are possible in the gadget. She don’t like too that it runs with batteries. She can’t mark the pages that love and most that if you are sensitive , as Sheri , you will have a problems with the eReader, because when you stop using him your hands will smell like plastic.

    • mloredo Says:

      Emil.
      look at your first paragraph, there are some problems of agreement. To begin with, Sheri is a woman. Also if you write in the presetn, you musn’t forget the “s” in the third person.
      You repeat the same agreement mistake many times. Try to re read what you wrote and spot the mistakes. Anyway, congratulations for your work! you have improved an awful lot.
      she does; she doesn’t.. and so on
