Here’s something about me…as I read books I ALWAYS find spelling or grammatic errors so I decided I will post the ones I find and where on here. I always told myself I would keep a log of this. It drives me absolutely crazy!!! Editors – DO YOUR JOB!!! Or else, I just may take over!!
I’ll need to go back through all my books again and find these errors but this will build over time! I’ve gotten out my red pen and I’m ready for action!
1. Water For Elephants by Sara Gruen – Page 319, Second paragraph, second sentence.
“My ribs show, and the a few hairs left on my chest are white.” - Remove the “a” and then you have a sentence.
2. Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah – Page 195, Second to last paragraph, first sentence.
“For years, she’d expended effort to keep the faucet of her longing for him turned off, but now that he so close, there was no holding back.” - “That he was so close.”
And another from her book. Page 216, 7th paragraph, 3rd sentence.
“She wanted to say more, pray to God to for help, but while she was grasping for words, the world tilted sickeningly and she passed out.” - “pray to God for help” Don’t need the extra “to” in there!
