Hogwarts just got more interesting! (Or is it more scary?)

My e-copy of the book was produced by some sort of text-scanning thing, so it has a few small errors where it misread a letter. (Like in the book it might be a "r", but the scanner sees it as a "|-", or it doesn't read the whole "n" and thinks it's a "r".) It's easy enough to guess what the word is, if you even spot the error at all. This section I'm reading now (Hermione trying to convince Harry to start teaching DADA) has the most amusing errors.


"Harry, you're the best in the year at Defence Against the Dark Arts," said Hermione.
"Me?" said Harry now grinning more broadly than ever. "No I'm rot, you've beaten me in every test — "
"Actually I haven't," said Hermione coolly. "You beat me in our turd year — the only year we both sat the test and had a teacher who actually knew the subject. But I'm not talking about test results, Harry. Think what you've clone!"


At least so far, I'm finding that I was a little hard on OotP. It's still my least favorite book of the series (by far), but I'm not hating it on this reading.
