Sometimes a person makes a mistake while speaking and says "James Flacco" instead of James Franco, but what about all of those times when the error exists on the printed page even after being reviewed by professional editors? Here are some examples and the reason why we track them.
... a wonderful book. Beautifully written and able to transport the reader to another world, another time, another life. Yet the author's spell kept being broken.
Because of the incredible disservice that the publishing house has given to its customers (and the author)! So many careless typographical errors appeared in that novel that we began keeping count of those we've spotted in each of the books that we've read since.
STOP THE PRESSES! (or, better yet, restart them)
Your voice has been heard. BookErrata.com has been contacted by HarperCollins the publisher of the very book that prompted the creation of this web site to alert us to the fact that they have published a re-proofed edition. Our review of the re-proof is here.

- It takes a lot of coding to present these errors on line and we have edited many books that we've not yet presented here. To see the list of titles that we've corrected but not yet coded for the web visit the Coming Soon link.
