I have a love/hate relationship with finding errors in books. Love spotting something wrong, hate the mistake exists in the first place. A recent crime again grammar was “shoe-in.” Really, shouldn’t the author, editor, beta reader, proofreader—someone, anyone—have caught it? It’s shoo-in, people. Never shoe-in.
shoo-innounnoun: shoo-in; plural noun: shoo-ins
- a person or thing that is certain to succeed, especially someone who is certain to win a competition.“he was a shoo-in for re-election”
