    webpage

    Please make the meaning of the sentence more accurate.
    When I browsed the bookstore webpage on your website, I was attracted by an English novel, Great Expectations.

    Re: webpage

    It would be more grammatical if you put 'Great Expectations' in inverted commas (or italics).

    NOT A TEACHER

    I kind of don't like the comma in before "Great Expectations". Is anybody of the opinion that it would be better without it?
    Please note that I'm not a teacher.

    No. It is necessary.

    Re: webpage

    What if I rewrite it like this?

    When I browsed the bookstore web page on your website, I was attracted by the English novel "Great Expectations".

    Is it now acceptable?

    Re: webpage

    I think "bookstore web page on your website" is unnecessarily wordy. I would use either :

    - the bookstore on your website
    or
    - your "Bookstore" web page
