That Lightsong error has been fixed.

This was posted last summer. Currently reading Warbreaker for the first time:

Page 501 – Warbreaker

“All right,” Vasher said. “I will do what I can.”
Vivenna nodded, turning back to the arena. The priests were withdrawing.
“Where are they going?”
“To their gods,” Lightsong said. “To seek the Will of the Pantheon in
formal vote.”
“About the war?” Vivenna asked, feeling a chill.
Vasher nodded. “It is time.”


Lightsong is across the Arena from them in his box seat and hasn't met either of them. This appears to still not be fixed on the pdf from Brandon's Website.

It's not fixed in the PDF, just in the paperback.
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

Hey, all, I've heard of a general website at which one can view/post typos found in various books.  Anyone know of this?

http://typoze.com — there is one person who has posted Sanderson typos there. The system looks pretty good—you can post your own opinions on other people's typos if you agree or disagree. I haven't totally examined its usability though.

Thanks, Peter.

 Are typos usually really different in ebooks compared to first editions?  Scanning errors and such?  I'm new to the ebook thing.  Does anyone seem to care enough to revise ebooks yet?  I've heard that Amazon isn't very responsive on the subject of fixing Kindle errors.

The errors can be different. It depends on what process was used to make the ebooks. Mistborn UK ebooks had a ton of OCR errors. US ebooks used a different process and didn't have the errors.

Amazon doesn't make the ebook errors. It's the publishers.
