Have you ever damaged a book? Dropped it in the bathtub? Spilled a bottle of ink? Used it to mop up spilled wine? Or just broken its back (poor thing).Deb – Booking Through Thursday
Have I ever?
I try to be careful with my books, I’d rather not bend them too far, I keep them away from water, drinks, soups. When I borrow books, I am extra careful. I only read these books at home, sitting on my couch: no accidentally crushed books when falling asleep, no frayed edges because the book has been at the bottom of my bag.
Once, I bought my aunt a new copy of Peter Høeg’s Smilla’s Sense of Snow, because I took the book with me on vacation to the beach: that was just asking for trouble!
