This blog post is long overdue. Oops. I posted this video last week on YouTube but since my social life has gotten quite a bit hectic recently, I’ve been neglecting the blog.
Anyway, this is the video in which I talk about reading pet peeves.
Reading Pet Peeves
- Cracked spines on paperbacks. So ugly. I try to avoid buying paperbacks altogether since I think hardcovers are a lot prettier, but sometimes, I just have to settle for the cost. To avoid the cracked spines, I usually try to read my books at a 45 – 90 degree angle.
- Reading books wide open. Okay, I guess my 45 – 90 degree angle rule applies to all kinds of books. I hate it when people flatten my books open. It pains me.
- Dogeared pages. Is it that difficult to find a bookmark? A scrap paper would do! A ribbon, a takeout menu, etc.
- Writing in books. Writing in books is understandable when it’s reading for school. I get that. But any other marks in books are unacceptable. Post-its anyone?
