This makes me want to cringe. Wait, no, I take it back – it make me cringe already. Would it kill someone to hire a copyeditor/any editor? Seriously. I would like to hear Miranda‘s thoughts on the matter.

It’s these little screwups that I think undermines the integrity of ebooks. Print feels more legitimate because it’s on paper – what could possibly have gone wrong? Isn’t it expensive to print things?

Yes, it is, but it looks ten times worse (in my opinion) when there’s a mistake. In an ebook, you fix some code. In the print world, you stop the presses.

I could feel Adin’s tears from here.
