Top Five… Bad Book Habits
Not taking care of books
|This book is sellotaped together and has several loose pages, rips and blemishes. But only because I love it so much and it’s been read so often.|
I used to be super careful of my books and would freak out if a page got creased or the cover got a little scuffed. I’ve learned to let go a bit now, and some of my favourite books are the ones that are the most battered. It just shows they’ve been well read and well loved.
Not lending books
Ever. I can’t do it any more. I’m too worried that someone will ruin it, or never give it back. Every time someone mentions borrowing a book I will skilfully steer the conversation away until it’s forgotten. No one takes my books!
|I can’t count how many times I’ve read this book. And I’m planning on doing it again soon…|
Judging books by their covers
|How gorgeous is this cover?!|
|There’s so many last sentence cliffhangers in this book and I kept pre-reading them all|
