[bksvol-discuss] Re: Fixing typos in submitted books

I'd bet it wasn't a scannoe, but rather a function of the automatic correction feature of whatever software they were using.

The book in question is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand.  The
submitter/proofer was Daproim Africa..

I suspect the problem I noticed was a scan-o, I can certainly believe
that 'Galt' would be read as 'Gait' and not caught by an unwary
proofer.

I have the book checked out now, it will be interesting to see if I
spot other problems.  I also suspect Mrs. Rand would not be at all
sympathetic to the bookshare cause.
