Is it just me?

I don’t know if it’s me or if other people notice it. I’ve read for years – after all, I’m 71 and started reading when I was 5, but I’ve never noticed so many typos, missed words, and grammatical errors as I have in the past year. Are editors getting lax or have I just become more cognizant of such things? And I’m not just talking about self-published books. Some have come from publishers who have editors on staff.

  1. It’s not your imagination. Writers have gotten sloppier, and editors aren’t catching as much. Part of the dumbing down of this country? Whatever the reason, it’s irritating.
