I hate it when a good book is poorly edited. Case in point: Among the Gently Mad, by Nicholas Basbanes.

In it, Mr. Basbanes talks about the "role of the dice" rather than the "roll of the dice" (trust me - the context is clear that we're talking about rolling, not playing a part).

Not as good as the paper one of my students once handed in about Martian Luther King, Jr., but still...
