I'm not sure exactly how to ask this question without giving an example, so here it is. What's the best way to phrase something like this:

"Found 3 errors (and gave 2 suggestions) for 'Some Book'"

Found 3 errors (and gave 2 suggestions) for 'Some Book'

If these were to be written separately, you would want to write "Found 3 errors in 'Some Book'" and "Gave 2 suggestions for 'Some Book'". However However, I want to write it as tersely as possible, in a single sentence, but all these ways seem awkward to me:

"Found 3 errors (and gave 2 suggestions) for 'Some Book'"

"Found 3 errors (and gave 2 suggestions) in 'Some Book'"

"Found 3 errors in (and gave 2 suggestions for) `Some Book'"

  1. Found 3 errors (and gave 2 suggestions) for 'Some Book'
  2. Found 3 errors (and gave 2 suggestions) in 'Some Book'
  3. Found 3 errors in (and gave 2 suggestions for) `Some Book'

I think the first is the best, but is there a correct way to have a compound statement like this?
