What happens when you find a typo in a book?
Typos don’t happen often at all, since scanning and fixing typos in a book before it’s published is the work of editors and proofreaders, but every once in a while a misspelling will slip through the cracks. I tend to find that typos jolt me out of the story, for I usually have to refocus and reread the sentence or paragraph to be sure I actually saw a typo in the first place. Sometimes I just burst out laughing, the typo dissolving any tension I felt from reading, which could be a bad thing if tension is what the author was going for.
Of course, there are those times when you’re so into the book that your brain doesn’t even register the typo and you continue reading, none the wiser…
Do you have any typos that you remember off the top of your head right now that you’re willing to share?
