File Under: Typos, They Happen to Everyone, Apparently

So I've recently been reading a real page-turner that's currently featured on the New York Times' best-seller list.

And guess what?

I found a TYPO.

Yes, it happens to everyone, even best-selling authors, which makes everything in the universe seem right about now (yes, it's been one of those weeks).

How about you? Ever find a typo in an unexpected place that you never forgot?


  1. Yes and it drives me CRAZY!!! I know it happens to everyone, but I when I see it in a book it just really gets me. I'll even hurry to the next page to get away from it. I know. I'm just nuts. :)

  2. I feel exactly the same way, Ashley. EXACTLY. I don't think it's nuts in the least.

  3. First, I re-read it twice to see if I'm just crazy, then I am completely annoyed with myself and offended with the typo. I always feel like I should call the publisher and tell them: "Hey, there is a HUGE mistake on page 183. It really messes this up!"

    Of course, I don't.

  4. Yep, I found a small typo in my book. Nothing major and I'm not even sure I did it (I take much comfort in the thought that my publisher did it), but, nevertheless, it still brings a tiny twinge. Oh well - only God's Word is perfect!
