amazon.co.uk don't sell eBooks at all, AFAIK.


According to the middle school english teacher I asked, those should be singular conjugations, not plural.
Nate, I think both of these fall into that ambiguous area of a collective singular, e.g. team. Should you say "the team is" or "the team are"? INMHO it follows colloquial rules. But I believe grammarians don't fully agree. Just my thoughts.
