Normally people aren't into typos. Or at least that is what I get from you lot in the comment section whenever I, or anyone else, makes one.
"LOL, you call yourself a journalist", you say.
To which I now reply: "Just chill out a bit mate, it's an easy mistake - even some big name writers like JK Rowling make them from time to time".
Apparently people appreciate ol' JK's typos a lot more than mine, with a first edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone containing a rare error expected to fetch up to £20,000 when it goes to auction.
The edition is one of 500 hardback copies printed which contains a mistake on page 53 of the first Potter novel, with '1 wand' repeated in Harry's list of school supplies for Hogwarts.
"Like most enduring books aimed at younger readers, the Harry Potter books also have wide appeal to adults and there is a strong market among collectors for first editions.
"This copy is in excellent condition - one of the very best I've seen - and we're expecting a lot of interest."
Go on then lad, get it flogged.
