Scouring Books: The Great Typo Hunt

The Great Typo Hunt
by Jeff Deck & Benjamin D. Herson

Originally published in 2010

I don't tend to read a lot of narrative nonfiction because more often than not, it's just someone trying to raise a quick buck on a depressing story they somehow survived. I don't read to experience vicarious depression, or whatever epiphany came from the experience. This one's about some dude who convinced his friends that traveling around the country correcting typos was a worthwhile endeavor. Conclusions are reached about what typos are made, infractions committed at state parks are made, and someone who believes he has too much disposable income, or perhaps a really silly excuse for an extended vacation relates his experiences. It's kind of fun reading!
