Always fun to lead yourself
 
I like to read slowly as well and get annoyed with the various typos and grammar mistakes, but I never actually thought to keep track of them.

The only one I remember off the top of my head:

pg 796: Mat and Thom followed, and Mat led them straight into the darkness.

493 - his only idea bad been
583 - Failure needed always be punished. (is that right or not? Shouldn't it be just 'need'?)

Mat stands up twice (without ever sitting down) when Mo and Thom decide to get married.

I may have read all Mo scenes 10 times by now. Maybe.

I noticed a few such things when reading, but I tried to ignore them for some reason.

I rarely notice them my first time through

One I just noticed:

p 595, second paragraph: Slayer believed - for just a fraction of a section -

There are so many of these types of things. Also, many times the spatial relations between people and/or objects do not make sense. I just tend to ignore them.

538 - "That judgment is of no concern to this trial," Morgase said coldly." (extra quote)

page 374 chapter 23 "Foxheads"
She'd hadn't tied off Chesmal's shield

she'd is a contraction of she had. So she had had not tied...?

And from those of us who listen to audiobooks:

Kate Reading mispronounced Pedron Niall name like 4 times in one paragraph. Before it always sounded as Nile (river in Africa, without "the" in front; jk) and now it sounds like Neil (a name). I liked Nile a lot better! Just letting people know, that's all.

371 "Dared she ask the questions?" should be "Dare"

403 "No longer be a symbol of darkness or hate. A sign of victory and hope." maybe change to "No longer will it be a symbol of darkness or hate, but rather a sign of victory and hope."

408 "No, guess that I do not" should be "No, I guess that I do not"

494 "killing hundreds of Trollocs and Fades trapped inside." should be "Fades that were trapped inside."

496 "where the Lastriders had been said to watch" should that be "sent to watch"?

Typo: Tom just chuckled, then glanced down at the scroll in his other hand.
"Tom" instead of "Thom" page 296 US Hardback 1st edition
I do not recall Thom ever being referred to as Tom, by any character.

345 – “Men always think it would be a grand to be known in every tavern and every city,” Noal said softly.

Should be: Immediately, her weaves unravelled and the Source winked away from her.
383 – Elayne cringed, imagining her own Guards forbidding her exit to her chambers.
Should be: Elayne cringed, imagining her own Guards forbidding her exit from her chambers.
386 – “... who will watch from the ridge to the southeast and send word if we should we fall.”
Should be: “... who will watch from the ridge to the southeast and send word [(if we should) or (should we)] fall.”
768 – Since when have laces been mentioned on Mat’s boots? The only laces I’ve ever heard tell of were on the boots of the Aiel.

'unravelled' is British spelling.

Apparently, it's Canadian and American spelling, too. At least, that's what it says for me on Microsoft Word. But maybe I'm just ignorant ;)

Terez 11-05-2010 06:54 PM

Try searching 'unraveled' in an actual dictionary.

Khoram 11-05-2010 07:34 PM

Hmm... I seem to be corrected. Thank you, Terez.

Page 639 - Stronger than Blood

"We'll work it out," Galad said. "You let me protect you, Egwene, and I'll obey you in anything else. I promise it."
Should read Gawyn, not Galad.

p. 530 "Now you're sure you can't create gateways at all? Not even to other points nearby, inside the effected area?"

--- That should be 'affected', not 'effected'.


p. 801 He was not leaving his hat, burn him. It was a bloody good hat.

--- Ha. That should be 'good bloody hat'. :p
