helping with my proofs

A nearly 400 page book involves a lot of proofs ... and that's slow, painstaking work - a missing quotation mark in mid quotation here, an indefinite pronoun that's been dropped from a title there, an occasional dropped couple of words ... I do it the traditional way, covering up the text and releasing and reading one line at a time.  I'm also grateful for the fact that OUP has a professional proof reader going over it all too, because my available help is more like a large, spreading, furry paperweight.
