Typos or Mistakes in Books

I've noticed, lately, the far more disturbing phenomenon of authors using incorrect words. For instance, one of the authors I am reading right now has been using "foster" in place of the correct "foist". As in, "Bill fostered his burden on Jill." when it should be "Bill foisted his burden on Jill."

Typos will bother me if there's too many. I really hate finding improperly hyphened words. Why this happens, I can only guess that it's better to hyphenate the word than adjust the spacing.

All the time and it drives me nuts. Mostly because they're usually library books so I can't do anything to correct them. I've been known to correct my own (using editors marks no less).
