As readers and book-lovers, we don't agree on everything! Some readers feel it is perfectly acceptable to dog-ear pages in a book instead of using a bookmark or writing in the margins of a book or even highlighting the text, while others do not find these types of activities acceptable.
In an article I discovered on Bustle titled 15 Things All Book-Lovers Can't Stop Fighting About by Kerri Jarema. In the article, Kerri Jarema writes:
But there are lots of other bookish things we can argue over, too, and these can get far more personal. Why would you buy books when you can get them from the library? Who in their right mind would rather see the movie before reading the book? And why, for goodness' sake can you not use a bookmark to hold your page instead of bending the corners down? Who knew books could be such a hotly contested subject? Well, we did, of course, and we compiled a list of the top fifteen things that all book lovers argue over below. Let's just promise to fight clean, shall we?Click on the above link to read which 15 things all book-lovers can't stop fighting about! Do any of them ring true for you?
My library makes you pay a yearly membership to get your card for the audio department,then pay for every book you request sometimes up to £3 per book. If you like urban fantasy, zombies and horror, the books they have are about 8 years out of date so you have to request everything you want to read. So the library is not an option we all have.ReplyDelete
Wow, that's crazy to make one pay for an audio membership to the library and to request a book too. Can't believe how out of date the books are at your library for urban fantasy, zombies and horror.Delete
Oh goodness, bending the corners of books annoys me so much!! While I do like the idea of writing in books and putting something of yourself in them, bending the corners is just annoying and useless. Soon, all of the corners of the book will be creased and it doesn't add to the aesthetic at all! I always use a bookmark.ReplyDelete
Folding pages over to book mark pages annoys me!! I just bookmarks too.Delete
