Booking Through Thursday 05/11/15 'Damage'

Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme hosted byBooking Through Thursday and a different question is posted every week.

Have you ever damaged a book? Dropped it in the bathtub? Spilled a bottle of ink? Used it to mop up spilled wine? Or just broken its back (poor thing).

I love keeping my books in as pristine condition as I can.  I hate to see books that I love so much, damaged.  But in the years I've been reading, not all books have escaped unscathed, as occasionally, I can be clumsy.
I've dropped them- bending and creasing pages.
I've spilled drinks that have unfortunately gone on books.
I've been caught in the rain and books have accidentally gotten wet.
And I've caused I've creased and broken spines through reading.
No books have ever been harmed on purpose.

  1. I'm with you on not damaging books on purpose--it's all gentle wear and tear.
