Misread titles, misread names, signs, etc.
Tell about entertaining misreads you've encountered, and maybe what it's led to.

(a small example):
Like me always reading "furigana" as "furinga" >.<


I should have added a poll~

Happens from time to time, specially when I'm not really focusing when reading (wich is most of the time). Can't really tell examples since most of it was in spanish, not in english.

Yeah, I do sometimes, I'll post up some examples later if I can think of them. It's a day-by-day thing, though; sometimes I'll go for a long time without misreading anything and then I'll misread a whole bunch of stuff in the same day. eyes

If something sounds or is written like something pervy,
I will not be able to read it right.

hmmm >_> <_<

I made a huge mistake while reading a book... I don't remember what it was but I had to re read the whole chapter just to understand how they found the clue that led to the end of the book...

I usually don't have problems reading... unless I stay all night doing so (I do it with any good book that lands in my hands)
