My Worst Fear

See this book, doesn't it look good!


Now see the spine? Does something look wrong to you...


Do you see it now? Oh my gosh Assignment is spelled wrong! Apparently someone forgot to use spellcheck! I hope I never do that!



I just noticed this and had to share!

  3. That is too funny. I wonder how many people missed that before it went to press.

  5. Khy- At first I was like hmm is this an ARC, but it's not! Maybe our editions are different? I'm glad it was eventually caught!

  6. NICE! You should hold to that and maybe it'll be a collectible.

  7. LOL. I so would have never caught that. But then again I am a BAD speller.

  11. Wow, random discovery! I don't know how long it would take for me to notice something like that!

    Since you discovered it, I nominate you to hunt down all the copies and make sure it's spelled right or add in the 'n'! Haha, doesn't that sound like fun? :)

  15. I have this book, signed. I imagine mine is misspelled, too, (did they, at any point, realize & fix it?) but it's 4000 miles away, so I can't check. And now it's going to bug me. When next I see my copy, the spine will be the first thing I look at.

  16. Haha save it! Maybe you have a special one that can be considered a collectible! x]

  18. Ohhhh no! I'm the sort of person taht wouldn't pick up on it hehe, I would have let it go to print like that :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh God. They need an editor like you, Alea! Yikes. Don't you think SOMEONE would've caught that? *cringe*

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh, how embarrassing! I love that author, too.

    ReplyDelete
  21. lol..I can imagine how embarrassed the author and publishers were when they noticed.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Too funny. But don't count on spellcheck to catch everything.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I just got this book from Swap because Steph so highly recommended it. Just checked and my copy is the same as yours! I've never been observant like that so I'm not surprised I hadn't yet noticed. :P

    ReplyDelete
  24. Waah, how terrible and yet how funny! It kinda makes your copy "special" I guess!

    ReplyDelete
  25. That's the first thing I noticed when you showed the photo of the spine...I think that's because I'm always conscious of how I spell that word. I used to get it wrong a lot in school.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yes, you should be thrilled that you may just have a rare collectable :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. That is so funny! Especially since it wasn't an ARC.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I looked at that and knew something was wrong with the word Assignment, but it took me a while to figure out what! That is kind of annoying.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Omg, lol! How awful for that author.

    ReplyDelete
  30. How horrible! Poor author!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm glad you guys enjoyed this! When I first noticed I was like no... that's can't be!
