This or That? #93

For anyone who needs a reminder or is new to the Bookmark Chronicles, here are the rules: Every Monday I will post a This or That Challenge where we will choose between two characters or scenarios. On Friday we will see which scenario/character wins. Feel free to either comment your choice below or make your own post and link it back here! :)

By no means do you have to feel obligated to do every single challenge, but I would love to hear all of your opinions! If you can only really talk about one scenario then go for it. Also, if you have any suggestions or would like to write a guest post about any of the This or That? topics let me know!


This week I want to know…….

Have you ever found a typo (or typos) in books?


I have. If it’s just one, maybe two, in the entire book then I’ll let it slide. If there are a lot then it really bothers me. I understand human error and all and even with technology, mistake happen. But there was one book that I read a few summers ago where I found at least 10 typos within the first 100 pages.

I would have thought that maybe it was an early draft or something but I really don’t think that it was.

What about you? Have you ever found typos in books? Let me know.

    Ughhh yes. I hate typos in books. A misspelled word I can usually deal with. However, it drive me nuts when a word is a missing from a sentence cause I get super confused with that’s happening xD

  2. I find them often, especially with indie books or ARCs. Grammatical issues bug me more than misspellings, because what I often find with the misspelled words is that they are homophone errors. Wave/waive. Sight/site. Story is key to me and will always trump structure unless it looks like a rough draft I’m reading. I don’t care how neat the story could have been, if you have clunky, error-laden sentences that do not flow, no dice.

    Yes, yes, OMG YES! Like you said, one or two… eh, OK. I’m pretty sure I found some in the version of Shakespeare’s work I’m reading (yeah, yeah, still lol). I usually question the quality of the copy-editor more than anything when that happens.

    But, I stopped reading a series (it was a terrible series anyway; I read it for too long as it was lol) because it looked like the author & editor just gave up. There were dozens per chapter. *SMH*

    However, I find typos almost everywhere. You should’ve seen the look on my physical therapist’s face when I gave him a copy of a health care form covered in corrections. 😀
