For several years after the book was left on my bookshelf untouched


after or afterward(s)? And there should be a comma after "after/afterward(s)", right?

  • grammar -

    I would use - For several years the book was left untouched on my bookshelf.

    thank you!

    For several years the book was left untouched on my bookshelf—I had lost my interest in it.

    is the punctuation correct?
    and should there be no comma after years?

  • grammar -

    There should be a comma after "years," yes.

    There should be a period after "bookshelf." Then start a new sentence. You don't used dashes to separate complete sentences.

    thank you for your help!

    You're very welcome!
