Busy Busy Bee

... I'm dealing with my book proofs at the moment. I have a couple of weeks to turn them around.

Which would be entirely not-a-stress, if some helpful copy-editor hadnt gone through and changed the grammar at least once on every page, to "fix" sentences until they dont make sense. And I'm having to keep an eye out for those, as well as my own typos.

They've put "the" in front of everything, for some the wierd the reason.

For example:

Original text: 40,000 books from Harvard will be digitized.

"Corrected" version: The 40,000 books from the Harvard will be digitized.
