I know this isn't going to bother most of you but it does to me.

I have noticed spelling errors in Gooberz and I am only in Canto 7. I have losted count of how many spelling errors I have come across.


I know it must have been a mammoth task to sub-edit and proofread the book and I raise my hat to those who did it, but I just can't help noticing these things like spelling and grammar errors in whatever I read.

OR, perhaps Linda deliberately mispelt(or is it mispell?) certain words?

That is my gripe for the day.

I have only noticed a few. Most of them are intentional.

What Randall said!

I too did notice- and also noticed the intentionalisms of them too!
But even if they weren't as you said, Yang, it makes it more interesting, human, and real.

It must have been very difficult to proofread such a book.

I know a few of them were not intentional.

you say "losted" and complain about grammatical errors in a book, LOL

------------------
I once saw a sign that said "sin is death" but if "all deaths are suicide (linda goodman)" and suicide is sin, then shouldnt "death is sin" be more appropriate?

I have CDO. It's like OCD, but the letters are in alphabetical order, as they should be.
