Everyone needs copy editors these days cause man, they've sure gone away and we're suffering for it.

I love me my kindle, but I swear the number of typos, misspellings, bulk replaces, missed replaces that I find in the text make me want to cry.

And you know, I've been finding them more and more in the paper copies too.

All of this while the publishing industry still sits there and insists that an e-book needs to be the same price as the print copy because it has to cover all the same costs as the printed versions. *grr* If you're going to charge me a premium then give me the service.
