    Correct my sentences plz.

    I have made the following sentences. Are they correct?

    It seems as if my book has disappeared off the face of the earth. I cant find it whereever I search.

    The red car was placed first finally.

    I dont know who has stolen my notebook, but I will get to the bottom of it.

    I work as much as I'm paid. Not more, not less.

    Thanks.

    I work as much as I'm paid. Not more, not less. (This sentence just does not sound right to me)

    I work as much I am paid for. Not more, not less.
    I work for what I am being paid. Not more, not less.
    ("nothing more, nothing less" sounds better in my opinion)
    Thanks.
