With only a couple of days remaining until the release of the My First Dictionary book, I thought I’d give you a sneaky peek at the back cover:

Alongside words previously featured here on this very blog, the 192-page magnum opus comprises over 50% entirely new content, including vocab tests, flashcards and entries guaranteed never to appear online!

Who makes these guarantees? I DO! (Oh, and my publishing contract.) Besides, have you ever known italics to lie?

I do plan on snagging myself a copy of that there book, but I'm shocked and stunned that a librarian of all people would use the incorrect "peak" in his post...

Ross Horsley said...

Dear God, Some Guy, you're right! I can only think that my typing of the word "sneaky" in such close proximity caused the error. In any case, I'm going to have to go back and edit it now... I can't bear to leave it up. Thanks!

Hey, that happens to me all the time: the confounding of peek/peak. And I'm pernickety when it comes to words! But it is indeed the presence of "sneak" or some variation thereon that sneaks in and mucks up the "peek." It happens to the best of it. And we're the same ones that actually appreciate having the typo pointed out for rectification! :D
