I think getting rid of proofreaders is a BAD, BAD idea.
I was excited to receive this book from the library the other day.
I noticed a word misspelled in the second sentence of the introduction.
I was so mad I sent the book back.
If there are mistakes in blogs or Facebook, those are a bit more tolerable as these are informal platforms.
A book is so TANGIBLE and so PERMANENT. Wouldn’t you proofread the book?!
