Grammar police on duty

I saw this picture on Facebook and it got me thinking.

I've been struggling a bit with all the grammar, punctuation, spelling and usage mistakes in my Kindle books. Even real published print books tend to have mistakes in them, books that have presumably been edited by a real editor.

What's up with that?

Why is it even book publishers are making errors now?

And what can I, one lonely grammar nazi, do about it?

Should I circle the errors in printed books and fax them to the publisher? Should I email the self-published authors and point out the multitude of errors in their e-books?

Or should I do what I've been doing, just shrug and sigh and move on?

I'm frustrated. How about you?
