This is an incredibly silly question.
Depends on (i) what you count as errors (typos? misspellings? false assertions?); (ii) the level of the book; (iii) the publisher; (iv) the author; (v) many, many other factors.
Some authors/publishers have reputation for nighimmaculate books; others for sloppy work. Your question is unanswerable.
