I’ve started Braiding Sweetgrass but haven’t gotten very far yet.
QOTW: Typos drive me batty, but I probably wouldn’t email the author or anything.
I have been doing a large (not terribly consequential) project with a friend and she drafts emails from both of us and then I clean up the content and edit out her typos. We both have strengths so this has generally been working very well. The times she sends stuff before I see it and I spot the typos, with my name on it, I cringe so hard. 😬🤣 It’s been a fun lesson in making my Type A chill a little, haha.

QOTW: I notice them a lot but I think that's because I worked for so long in editing. I notice them more in ebooks than in hard copy books, though. I think that's kind of strange, but it is what it is. The typos bother me especially if it's in a book from a well known author. I just assume they have more dedicated editors and publishers than someone who is self-published. *shrug*
I'm reading Anne Mccaffrey's The Skies of Pern. I had started a re-read of the whole series maybe 2 years ago; I hadn't read them in decades. But, I don't think I had ever read this one. There are definitely parts of the books that are cringe-worthy now that I don't remember being aware of in middle/high school.
I'm listening to The Exiles for book club.
QOTW: yes, definitely, and for this reason I haven't read a self-published book in years after a bad experience with a Kindle recommendation. I can't get beyond the typos to enjoy the book.
I finished The Echo Wife and The Guest List, and now I'm about 60% of the way through Hench.
QOTW: I have a minor in technical communications, and spent a lot of time looking for weird text issues in the UI of my job, so I definitely notice. I once read a book where the author repeated several paragraphs, verbatim, in two different chapters (this wasn't a printing error either, it flowed, it was just incredibly poor editing; it was also a shit book, but that's a different topic, LOL!).
