So this week I decided to try something different and new – a discussion post! I’m still not 100% sure how it’s supposed to work, but I can attempt it… right? Any tips, or improvement suggestions for future posts are welcome 🙂
I have met people who do every possible option out there. Break spines, break some spines but not others, break spines but get upset and angry about it, or fear breaking spines like some fear Satan himself… Which, let’s just face it – is a lot.
When I was a wee child (read: silly 11 year old) – I used to break almost all spines and not think too much about it because who has the time to waste on such trivial matters… right? Right? WRONG.
The above is an accurate representation of me when I think about the possibility of even putting one tiny line on the spine of a book… Okay – mayyybeee that’s a slight exaggeration, but I thought Ryan illustrated it really well.
And before anyone says something (I’ve heard people get pretty offended about these sometimes). No. I do not care what anyone else does to their books – it is just a personal preference of mine.
Who knows? Maybe this will change in a few years time – maybe I’ll mature and think that this little obsession with pristine book spines was inane and pointless, maybe I won’t and it will remain somewhat a pet peeve of mine, I guess we just wait and see.
Do you break spines? Or, like me did you once and then decided to stop? Tell me in the comments below 🙂
