Books are never finished, just abandoned

In January, I did a final proofreading of Turn Left, fixed a million mistakes, and sent it off to Cambridge University Press. In March they handed me a copy-edited proof with a million more mistakes to correct. I fixed them. Last week they sent me a pdf of a proofreading with a million more mistakes to fix. I fixed them. Then my co-author and I did a final look through and found a few hundred more things to fix. We fixed them.

Today I have uploaded what will be the version of the book that will be printed this summer and appear in the stores in September, all going well. I estimate that it only has 1,294,629.2541 more mistakes (plus or minus a million) still to be found.

By someone else, not me.
