You may or may not have seen my post at Punctuality Rules Tuesday, about a book I recently bought that had the actual TITLE misspelled on the spine of the book. A glaring typographical error that really (really!) should have been caught. So, using that as a springboard, today’s question: What’s the worst typographical error you’ve ever found in (or on) a book? Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!
I've seen a few hear and their in books. Sometimes it gets on my nerves, but usually I can get over it. My local newspaper is notorious for it though. I once saw 'weather' used for 'whether' in a headline. Since I don't have a lot to say about this, watch this: The Impotence of Proofreading.
