Musing Monday #8

Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week...
  • Describe one of your reading habits.
  • Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you choose that/those book(s).
  • What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it!
  • Tell us what you're reading right now – what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren't) enjoying.
  • Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
  • Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books – let's hear it, then!
Something that really irritates me about when people read books is when they fold the cover of the book all the way backwards. 

This literally drives me insane. I want to cringe every time I see this. I don't know if I'm just overly sympathetic to books but why would you bend the poor book's spine so much? What has the book ever done to you? 

Not only does the book no longer lay flat when you close it but now the spine is permanently damaged.

I really don't know why but people who do this absolutely baffle me. I see it all the time and I cannot even begin to fathom why someone would do this. It has never crossed my mind to abuse a book in this fashion. Would you want someone to do this to your spine? 

Now that that little rant is over, please leave a comment sharing your Musing Monday or respond to mine. 
Don't be afraid if you bend book spins. Ok, maybe you should just a little.
Happy Monday! :)


  1. When I finish reading my books they look like new. No creased spines for me

    Here is my musing

  2. I think they are having trouble keeping the book open so they over do to keep it open and ruin the book. Not my style either. Here is my MM

  3. I judge people that do that. Rap them on the knuckles!

  4. Oh my gosh, that just made me want to scream when I saw that picture!

    I must admit, I'm a bit OCD with my books. I get pretty upset when I accidentally crease the spine, no matter how careful I've been. :(

  5. Guilty as charged for me I do it chronically and it drives my hubby insane. Here's my musing:
