So I recently got an old second hand Carrie novel but as I was reading I picked up on something.
on page 87 line 3 it says
'To so domething and windows suddenly banging down etc.'
I looked up an online copy of the book but it read
'To do something and windows suddenly banging down etc.'
I was wondering if anyone else had a copy with a spelling error or if it was just a rare occurance?

...Hiya young lady!...typos are rampant in the publishing industry-despite some of the best proof-readers around...so while it doesn't happen ALL the time-it's not rare...
