i bend the corners of pages too

This made me smile.

How careful are you with your books? I am guilty of being rather careless with my paperback books. I always crack the spine, and bend the cover. I take more care with the hardcovers though.

Something that made you smile this week?

  1. Hmmm, I guess I just treat books normally. Unlike the author of the instructions, I don’t give it a lot of thought, but neither do I abuse them.

  2. When I’m dealing with old books, manuscripts, etc at the museum it’s like the instructions above (and with white gloves), but on my own they definitely get beat up a bit.

  3. I’m a little ridiculous about not mucking up my books. To torture myself, I occasionally lend books to other people and invariably they come back looking a lot less respected. I’m getting better. I think.

  4. It takes time, I imagine. ;)
