This week's Booking Through Thursday is:
Have you ever damaged a book? Dropped it in the bathtub? Spilled a
bottle of ink? Used it to mop up spilled wine? Or just broken its back
Never on purpose! I have spilled
water on books a few times, and felt terrible about it while it dried
out all crinkly over a radiator. I've spilled food on them a couple of
times too, leaving unfortunate food stains on the pages.
hate seeing them damaged, even newer books, although it's really
heartbreaking to see a wonderful old book that's survive 100 years
intact get hurt. I have to avert my eyes when I pass shops that use
pages from old books or sheet music.
