Thanks, Jacqueline, for the comment. In my last book (non-fiction), I found eight typos in the galleys and was dismayed. My editor went through the galleys from his end and found four of them. I doubt the book was perfect after our editing (I had edited the book a dozen times before I sent it to him), but it was better.
It's always easier to find errors or typos when the book comes out. They almost jump out at you.
