Scanning Faux Pas

18 January, 2017

The Author is forever grateful to Google for sponsoring the digitization of million and million of books, and to the people who undertook the tedious task of scanning billions and billions of pages.

Also, there is no doubt that the sight of bright pink finger protectors is a cheerful interruption from scrutinizing name after name.

However, woe be the Author if her current research project hinges on a ‘Married Maiden’ between ‘Phelps’ and ‘Rich’ in the 1909 New York Social Register. scanning-faux-pas

Also on the topic of impeded reading, Diligent Readers might recall this rather comical misprinting of E.M. Forester’s Where Angels Fear to Tread.
