I hope you will continue to point out errors, perhaps saying that you feel the author would like to know.
I do, but if they aren't interested I don't bother with the ones from their other books, I just fix them myself. But it isn't just indie books, it's also big publisher books. They just don't seem to employ proof readers anymore. At best they rely on advance readers.
