This or That? #97

This week I want to know……

How do you feel about laying books open, face down?

I do it all the time ~ I hate it with a burning passion ~ I’m indifferent


I must admit that it bothers me because I’m afraid of breaking the spine. Broken spines are one of my biggest bookish pet peeves. It ruins it!

When I was reading my new version of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, the spine started to crack a little at the top just because of how thick the book was. I was heartbroken. I legit wouldn’t open the book but so far so that it wouldn’t crack anymore. There’s no way that I could’ve left it face down/

What about you? Does this bother you at all? Let me know!

    I’m indifferent and laughing while I type my answer as I had no idea it’s an issue.

  2. Huh I don’t think I’m a fan of it. Usually if I need to leave a book for a second I just stick a pen or pencil as a bookmark. But leaving a book like that long term…hmm I fear for the spine!

    It should be illegal to put a book face down – I always find a bookmark, even if its a scrap of paper! 😀

    While, personally, I don’t like using the word “hate” (I think “hating” something/someone gives too much power & my energy to something I don’t like), given the choices I have to say: “I hate it with a burning passion.”

    It’s probably my 3rd biggest book related pet peeve, after writing/highlighting in a book (#1) & dog-earring the pages (#2). LOL
