1-I remember a book by a French writer author I read.
Isn't that sentence ambiguous?

1a-I used to read that writer
1b-I read that book


============================
2-I remember an episode of a TV series I watched.
Isn't that sentence ambiguous?

2a-I watched the series
2b-I watched that episode

Gratefully,
Navi.

I don't like that sentence. It doesn't make sense to me. "I remember a book by a French writer author I used to read", brings it back a bit.

1a-I used to read that writer's books.
1b-I read that book Fine.

Isn't that sentence ambiguous? Yes it is. Did you watch the whole series or a particular episode?

2a-I watched the series Fine
2b-I watched that episode Fine
