Inspired by a conversation with a coworker the other day:
It’s time for summer reading, so … today’s question? What’s the worst thing you ever did to your reading material? Sand in the bindings from the beach? Dropped into the pool? Covers smeared with sunscreen?
And, if you’ve never done actual summer-time damage … have you EVER damaged your book/magazine/paper? Dropped it in the bathtub? Used it to kill a bug? Spilled with coffee?
I have been known to spill coffee, coke, tea, and/or water on a book. I do a lot of reading outside and tend to leave the books outside sometimes, then they get wet from the dew and sometimes rain.
I never throw a book away. I try to repair the damage as best I can and keep on reading. 🙂
