Rosen, go to nearly the bottom of the page...

Have look?

Have 'a' look.

I guess in spoken English, you often miss out the 'a'.

Damn, damn and damn again. I HATE typos - especially if I make them myself. Just fixed it and now I feel pretty dumb. What a way to advertise my proofreading service.

Bev, you mentioned that you've fixed the typo but I've checked your homepage with three different browsers and the typo is still there.

What I Read

Dumb Question

Common or garden reader here with a layman's question ........

Apart from the obvious, what does a Proofreader actually do?

Is it as obvious as reading the material with fresh eyes and a meticulous mind picking up on typos, grammar, spelling, sentence/paragraph structure etc or are there other aspects to it?
