I’ve been a “monster” to books.
At least, that’s how people who have dog-eared book pages are viewed nowadays, if social media posts are to be believed. I don’t do it too often. Generally I’m able to stop on a chapter and remember my place, but once in a while when I’m interrupted, I fold the corner of the page.
Where did the notion that dog-earing (is that a word?) is bad? Obviously you don’t want to damage the book, but I think a book that looks a little worn just means that it was loved and well-read.
And that’s all that books want, right?
Clean and pristine books make a shelf look pretty, but how often are they handled and read?
What do you all think of dog-eared pages?
