I'll admit to eating while reading but ninety-nine percent of the books I get are from the library. For my books I do it less and tend to be more careful about that. I'm harder on the library books so I usually lay them open but my books get some sort of a bookmark. If the chapter isn't going to be ending soon I'll just with a period instead.ReplyDelete
Was surprised how similiar some of our answers were...very cool! Although you were much more concise in your answers, as I tend to ramble. *L*ReplyDelete
Totally agree with you that marking up books is horrifying! And it's nice to know that I'm not the only one who alphabetizes their books by author's last name.
I'm forever recommending Kristen Cashore too. Thus far I've only managed to convince a couple of people to read GRACELING, but I'll persevere. :)ReplyDelete
I usually put down my book to eat. Cause it would really bug me if I got stains on my books.ReplyDelete
I'm picky with my shelving too. I have all the paperbacks together. Then the hardcovers and trade paperbacks on another shelf.
For my love of organizing I don't organize much..perhaps cos I have barely any shelvesReplyDelete
I wish I could read more than one book at a time but I tend to start a book and finish it in one sitting if I can lol.ReplyDelete
I try to use bookmarks but I usually misplace them. How I do this? Who knows? So I will use receipts, napkins, clothing tags, well pretty much any loose piece of paper close to me.ReplyDelete
