This week's question:

"Book abuse! What's the worst thing you've done to a book?"


Hmmm...As a kid, I wasn't all that kind to books. But now, as an adult, I have a deep respect for them. I cringe at the thought that I used to just throw away (GASP) books whenever I  moved, instead of donating them or giving them to Goodwill. So that is the worse I have ever done. **Hangs head in shame.

And looking at the ladies of UTC--some of their responses are similar to mine.

Francesca: Yep. I'm a roller--it saves on wear and tear of a book. I used to bend the book (GAH) and that ended up breaking the spine.

Annie: Yep--Faefever was a hardback that I did throw across the room. Also threw Breaking Dawn across the room when the honeymoon scene severely disappointed me. "WTF?! This is a YA Book? GAH!!"

Suzanne: I used to dog ear pages too, but now I use a bookmark when I remember. What I AM bad about is resting the book opened to where I am at....which isn't so good on the spine either.

Angela:  I have sticky noted an ARC once-- but now I usually get ARC's on my kindle. I LURVE and ADORE the highlight feature. Saves on sticky notes and wear and tear.

Hate me?

Share with me your DLS!


  1. LMAO I don't feel so bad now :) I guess I should get in this habit of sticky noting ARCs huh? It would make my life easier. My current method is to have my iphone handy and take a picture of what I want saved, I have a folder of those pics on my phone now and at the ready when I sit to write a review.


    1. Francesca, Your ARCs seem to be in print more than mine...that is why I love getting them on my kindle---I love the highlight feature :)
      wow---but you have a cool way with your phone thingy :)

    1. Ann---WARNING---sexual vag/cock blocking WILL cause your book to be thrown against the wall.


  6. Funny you should ask this. When I was little, I would scribble in books. My Mom showed me my scribbles, this summer, while we were looking through my baby book. She commented on it & said that she never knew why I did that. And I also did it to the hymnals she used to have in the piano bench. This had to have been prior to age 8-9.

    1. Jessiel~
      LOL---I did too--In fact, you know those little envelopes for you to put your cash in for offering? They weren't safe either from my pen. OHHHHH....we were bad...LOL


I love getting comments...tell me what you thought of my post!
