Hello again Head First!

After going through the Web Design book (which I love!), I couldn't help but notice the ... fair number of typos, especially when compared to the XHTML/CSS book (although I might have the 2nd edition of that). Anyhow, is there a program or something where a potential reader (like me!) can get advanced or free/reduced price books in exchange for proofreading?

I think this would be a big hit, and it could SERIOUSLY cut down on typos.

I also think the most important aspect of proofreading a technical book like this is to have someone go through the book that is actually trying to LEARN the material, not just check it for errors. When you are trying to learn it, you see where all the little mistakes are, because it drives you crazy.

Let me know! Thanks!!
Timothy
