I think typos are quite charming. This may have something to do with the fact that all Matahari Books titles have them, damnit!
These are two extracts from a book, Tom Rob Smith's Soviet thriller The Secret Speech, published by the very reputable Simon & Schuster UK:
These two sections have the same error. What is it?
hmm, "it's" should be "its"?
i was never any good at 'spot the difference'! :(
Betul! Stay tuned for the second book!
Even Malcolm Gladwell's book, Outliers, which I'm currently reading, has typos!
Coincidence: I am reading BLINK! Bought it 2 years ago after a friend said it changed his life, but then I abandoned it, as I do so many other books that had proven to be life-changing to others. Picked it up again today and couldn't put it down!
Same here! I couldn't get past the first few pages of BLINK! I never finished his other book, The Tipping Point, either. But after Outliers, I'm ready to give both books a second chance. After I read something else, tho.
OMG the bloody proofreader should be sacked!
