Bug Description

I needed something to zone out on and OCD about :-)

Page 11, 2nd paragraph, last sentence: "The semantics of a loading a file ..."

Page 12, 2nd paragraph, 2nd sentence: "... within the body of the library."
Should be "script" instead of "library".

Page 13, last paragraph, 2nd sentence: "... it may either be defined in the libraries or imported from another library."
Since the context is singular example library and plural imported libraries, I think it's clearer if that's: "... it may either be defined in the library or imported from one of the imported libraries."

Page 14, 1st sentence: "... record names, condition names."
Should be "... record names, and condition names."

Page 17, 2.3.3 1st paragraph, 3rd sentence: "... such way ..."
Should be "... such a way ..." (I think...)

Page 19, 2.4 1st bullet point: "... a procedure that take a ..."
Should be "... a procedure that takes a ..."

Page 20, 1st paragraph, last sentence: "... calls to ..."
Should be "... call to ..."

Page 26, 2nd paragraph: "and then mutate ..."
Should be "and then mutating ..."

Page 26, last paragraph: "... to model common usage pattern ..."
Should be "... to model the common usage pattern ..."

Page 27, 2nd paragraph, 3rd sentence: "Typical used of ..."
Should be "Typical uses of ..."

Page 29, 2nd paragraph, last part: "... import thus easily ..."
Should be "... import and thus easily ..."

Page 32, 1st paragraph: I think is missing description of (gensym (gensym 'foo))

Page 33, 1st paragraph: "... procedures extends ..."
Should be "... procedures extend ..."

Page 37, description for "~d": missing comma after "... inexact number"

Page 47, 2nd paragraph, 1st sentence: "... constributed ..."

Page 52, 2nd listing: "form"
Should be "from"
