If you love the humor of typos (and who doesn’t?), read “The Great Typo Hunt: Two Friends Changing The World, One Correction At A Time”. This book is the story of editor Jeff Deck and bookseller Benjamin Herson, who bravely declared war on U.S. typos and set out on an adventurous quest to eliminate as many typos as possible nationwide.
During 2008, they and their friends traveled to places such as New Orleans, Myrtle Beach, Galveston, Santa Fe, San Francisco, Minneapolis and Albany and worked their magic. At one point, Deck and Herson ventured further north and corrected typos in Vancouver, Canada. To aid them in their quest, they brought essential tools such as chalk, adhesive letters, pens, Pop-Tarts and the “elixir of correction”. Deck and Herson succeeded in eliminating numerous typos, but some offenders unfortunately resisted change.
So when you need a humorous escape from reality, I highly recommend you find this book at your local library or bookstore. Also, enjoy reading their blog or see their television appearances here.
