Well, this one isn't actually a book title, but rather the narrator of a book. I was looking through Iambik, and saw a book narrated by John Green.

Me: OMG JOHN GREEN HAS READ FOR IAMBIK?! Cool!

Me 5 seconds later: Wait...that says John GreenMAN. :lol:

I read The Art of Stage Dancing by Ned Wayburn - kd as The Age of Star Dancing
Between being a full-time college student and working 20+ hours per week, I'm not able to be involved at LV these days, but I remain a loyal fan and look forward to a triumphant return sometime in the (probably distant) future.

Not quite a misreading, but I saw:
Thirty more famous stories retold by James Baldwin
and thought - Oooh I didn't know James Baldwin wrote anything before 1923. I thought he lived much later.

It (sadly) turns out I was right, and a different James Baldwin was the author.

The Gods are Athirst by Anatole France
I saw
The Gods are Atheists
Which would be quite an achievement.

N. Carolina to S. Carolina without a ticket - what's so clever about that, you just have to step over the border don't you ?

Maybe my geography is all wrong ? [Looks up map.]

No they have a common border ...... oops it says S. California :oops:
