    gerund...

    Hi, everyone...

    I don't know what is wrong in the sentence below...
    "We cannot read a good and interesting book for an hour without being better and happier for it."

    Best wishes...

    Re: gerund...

    Why do you think there is something wrong with it?

    An easier way to say this is "Reading a good, interesting book for an hour makes us better and happier."

    But I don't find the original to have any obvious error.
