pronoun

Sir,
Please correct the following sentences.


By the time when you come, I will be nine years old.

I am never boring,when I read her stories.

"By the time and When " can not be used together ,but I don,t know why? Please explain it in detail.
------------------------------------------


Every one should read their book.

Every one should read his or her book.

The First doubt ,shall I write "Every one" or "Everyone",because some where it is written like "Every one" and some where "Everyone".

The Second doubt about "their" and "his or her".
It is written that we can use "their" in Informal but "he or she" in Formal English.

My question is, shall I always use Formal, as I am a student.
---------------------------------------------------------

some boy ot the other has stolen my book.

This sentence is written in a English text book that is taught to me.


But in my previous query about the same question,You told me that this should be corrected like---------------

"some boy ot other has stolen my book."

But Many places I have seen the sentence like

"She always has some books or the other". As she is fond of reading books.




Thanks .
