This week I want to know…….

Have you ever found a typo (or typos) in books?

 I have to say that I have and I found them even with my favourite authors and some of my favourite books. Also like Bookmark Chronicles I understand that people make mistakes and even technology can as well. I have also noticed sometimes when I purchase books that are written by American authors, sometimes their English is different from ours and that their terms have been left in. For example:

Colour vs Color

aluminium vs aluminum

biscuit vs cookie,cracker

Just a few examples.
