How Do You Spell 'Sloppy'?

As though the last post wasn't a dismaying enough year-end reflection of our approach to reading and writing, here's another.

A visit to Crossword bookstore is generally annoying because of the thinness of the selection on offer. This afternoon's trip to their Juhu outlet, however, showed that the staff are sadly deficient in the arts of reading and 'riting, no matter how good they may be in 'rithmetic.

Here's proof:


  • Maybe it's some kind of inside joke. You know where...well it's too late here for me to get the punch line but all of that has to be intentional.

    "Sander's"? "Rushidie"?

  • I've always found Crossword and Oxford highly overrated. The selection of books is extremely standard fare, there's none of that joy that comes from finding The Book You've Been Searching Years For.

    Landmark, on the other hand...

  • it takes a rare talent to misspell the name of the author that's printed in big and bold on the cover of the book, doesn't it?

  • Great pictures. I'm reading Micael Creiton book right now. Thanks for the post - and I sure *hope* it's only an inside joke.

  • seeing they have only those 17 authors, you would think they could spell their names right.

  • Crossword has the most unintrusive and most helpful staff. As for the juhu store i was there a few days before and did not see even a single spelling mistake, atleast they keep correcting the mistakes and i must appreciate them for that.
