Recommended Literary Read: Orwell's 1984

AnnArbor.com's Sunday paper edition touts George Orwell's 1984 as "one novel that everyone should have under their [sic] literary belts." Orwell's grim prediction for the future is fully unveiled in the workings of the totalitarian state run by Big Brother. Often on the reading list of the public schools, this novel is one of those rare gems that is both entertaining and meaningful.

Sentence should read "one novel that everyone should have under their (sic) literary belts." "Everyone" is grammatically singular, and necessitates a singular pronoun ("he" is preferable, though "she" or "he/she" are also correct). You guys are a library and should know this.

Thank you for pointing out the inconsistency in the quote. It's now been fixed.
