Booking Through Thursday: Conditioning
Are you a spine breaker? Or a dog-earer? Do you expect to keep your books in pristine condition even after you have read them? Does watching other readers bend the cover all the way round make you flinch or squeal in pain?
I try to keep my books in good condition. I will admit that I am a dog-earer. I have lots of bookmarks, but I don't use them most of the time. I don't really know why, but I usually just end up dog-earing.
There are only a few books that I have broken a spine on, though. If a book that I own has a broken spine, it means that it was really good and I loved it. I only bend the spine on books when I've been reading for a while but I don't want to stop - no matter what.
What kinds of things do you do to your books?
