Typos and commas and spelling, oh my!

Got a great 5-Star review on Amazon today, but in spite of the "great story" description, this reader took exception to errors in the print. It seems that no matter how many times a manuscript it scrubbed, read, re-read and corrected, errors creep through. Maybe they breed at night. It does seem so at times. If there's one thing all authors, editors and publishers want, it's a good tale told without errors. Almost never happens.
 
That being said, I do want to hear from you if you come across errors in the paper or e-version of Blue Ice. I really try for perfection, that elusive beast. I'll post the errors here that this reader was kind enough to send me, these I know about now. I'm sure there are some she and I have missed. Anyone?
 
Table of contents - 395 pages, page count is 312.
p 38: "Leave sparring with the Feds to me . . ."
p 81: "They had chips and apples, cookies for dessert . . . "
p 151 last paragraph: " . . . words about sparring . . ."
p 189 Chapter 16 heading should read June 21 not June 12
p 312: ". . . his finger traced a line a lineon her . . ."
 
There you have it, a preview of sorts. Let's see what else you can find.
You can e-mail me your finds if you like -
