|Everyone's favourite co-blogger, Tori, rants fortnightly about all those little annoying things in the bookish world.|
Charli's Note: So this Tori Talks is just perfect. Over to Tori!
This is the ultimate bookish sin. If you mistreat one of my books then:
One of the things I ABSOLUTELY hate is dog-earring! Why can you not get a bookmark or even a piece of paper to put in to keep your page? Why do you have to damage the poor pages? It is totally unacceptable is someone is lending you their book and then you do it… If you do that then I will not even acknowledge your presence any more.
Another thing I hate is when people break the spine. I can’t stand this… Why do you feel the need to break the spine of books? They should be treated with respect and decency! If a book will not open properly without me opening it as I like, I will literally read it with the book half closed, just so I don’t break the spine. Also, if you break the spine in one of my books, it looks horrible on my shelf! I have nice, neat books with perfect spines and it’s very pretty… UNTIL YOU GET TO THE BOOK WITH A BROKEN SPINE BECAUSE THEN IT LOOKS UGLY! I cannot stand it.
Finally, one of the biggest sins EVER is getting food on books. I take books out of my school library regularly and most of the books there are damaged and have food on. If it’s your own book then I wouldn’t be as bothered because it is your own property but OTHER PEOPLE READ LIBRARY BOOKS YOU KNOW!?!?!? And why would you even have food near a book anyways? These people just frustrate me…
