Just My Typo: From “Sinning with the Choir” to “the Untied States” compiled by Drummond Moir

I won this book in a First Reads giveaway on Goodreads.com.

Just my typo is a collection of typos from around the world. According to the footnote in the Acknowledgements section, “Just My Typo is the first book to concentrate almost entirely on a single letter, punctuation mark, or space being in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

Each chapter of the book focuses on typos from certain areas (media, schoolwork, etc.). My favorites were Autocorrect Dystopia and Immaculate Contraption.  My favorite typo in the book is the kid’s homework one on page 43.

The book is a quick entertaining read. I’d recommend it to anyone who likes books about grammar or typos, teachers, editors and authors.

I love reading, listening to music, watching wrestling and spending time with my friends and family. I read mostly Young Adult books and I love paranormal books, especially vampire ones. I am originally from Connecticut, but I live in Maryland now. I have a book buying habit and I'm addicted to the book section of my local thrift shop.
