    Re: a book/ there is a book

    Welcome to the forum, George.

    Both sentences are correct, but the second is the one most native speakers use.

    Which is better? What's the difference?
    Thank you.
    Note my corrections above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
