My mother used to hit me for stepping on books or using my feet to slide a book over. Hello. Must respect books ok?
Actually now that I think about it, we weren’t allowed to lie down like that too, feet up. It was the fastest way to get your legs caned.
I am reminded of other rules. No sitting on books (I wince as I write this, which shows you how ingrained it is), or kicking them, or even walking OVER books.
Does this also reveal my age?
I think having been a bookseller and a volunteer librarian makes me even more sensitive about how books are treated. Gotta love your books, y’all!
How does it apply to Kindles or if you read from your iPad now?
