I can relate to misspelling. You scanned this blog lately? Once I finally figure out how to consistently spell recieved (or received, or whatever it is) it will be a big, important, memorable day.

If you’ve ever watched kids search for books on a computer then you know that things can often get tricky they spell an author’s name or title incorrectly. One wrong letter and they can end up in the entirely wrong place. An aside: Can someone please come up with a reliable “did you mean…?” feature for catalog searches?

The other day I was perusing the outstanding blog Stephen’s Lighthouse and saw this comic by Emily at Self Check. It pretty much sums things up:

It’s funny because it’s true – I’ve seen this one more than once.

Do you have other often misspelled title searches to share?
