Here’s a reason to proofread your electronic transfers of print books.
A glitch in the formatting of the e-book of George R.R. Martin’s “A Feast for Crows” rendered one reader’s experience of the fantasy epic unintentionally hilarious.
In the comments of an io9 post discussing book series that went on past its expiration date, a user with the handle Teshara shared some screengrabs from her e-copy, which inserts Martin’s name in awkward places.
My favourite is definitely:
“I was drunk on you. It had been ten years since … I never touched a woman until George R. R. Martin – A Feast for Crows.”
