[bksvol-discuss] Re: Favorite Scanno of the week

Hi Judy,

        I should not read e-mail like this one when  Jon is sleeping!  I
laughed out loud and am now just hoping that I didn't wake him up!

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Favorite Scanno of the week

Just have to share this one, as it really gave me a chuckle.

I'm doing a BSO of the title "Franciscan Book of Saints" because I noticed
when I started reading it that several of the Saints' 
names are slaughtered in the copy that's in the collection.  This is one of
those situations when spell checking will not catch the errors, as the
errors are in proper names.

Here's my favorite scanno so far:

Saint Conrad of Piacenza is listed in the table of contents as "Saint Conrad
of Placenta."

Hee hee hee! It's so incongruous, but there is no spelling checker in the
world that would have caught that one.  It makes me start laughing every
time I read it!

Funny as it is to me, it's also a good example of why I carefully read
through books when I'm proofing them, instead of just trusting in a spell
checker. smile.
