    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...

    My copy says "so domething" as well. Just put it down as an Under the Dome connection.

    Welcome!

    There are typos in just about every book that is printed; SK or not. It's impossible to catch everything.

    Welcome. It doesn't appear in my copy. So I guess Carrie fixed it.
