not really, though. eat ice cream while reading and dribble on the page. spill coffee. break the spine. read in the tub. some books are impossible to put down, and ice cream must be eaten and coffee must be drank and sometimes people who live with you absolutely demand that you bathe.
as a librarian, i mostly care that you read. i’d rather replace a book that has been read and dog-eared and underlined and well-loved than have a pristine copy sit unread on a shelf.
respect books, but don’t treat them as sacred (unless they are rare texts and all). life is messy, and if books are a part of your life, they might get messy. and that’s okay with me.
^ This! Books are not sacred! Absorb those ideas any way you can! A shell is a shell!
I got into a heated argument on the NanoWriMo fb group about this after someone had ripped out pages of books and used the spines for a craft project. Everyone just seemed so…offended. I was like…um, it’s just paper, people. They are mass-produced and all.
ETA: library books though are different, as they are not your property. so, before anyone just jumps on me for this.
My cousin and cousin-in-law aren’t vaccinating their baby and whenever I see a good article on how anti-vaxxers endanger children I want to share it on facebook but my parents would get mad at starting an argument. I posted such articles BEFORE I knew about them, and the fact that they have chosen this greatly upsets me and I think that they are wrong and I want to tell their doctor to say all of this to them and more and basically get mad and yell at them and tell them they are wrong.
