I'll never forget the day my father-in-law looked at me in horror and said, "You dog-ear your pages?"
I know I looked at him blankly. "What?" I'd never heard that phrase before. Turns out I'd been abusing my books my entire life, bending the corners of the pages, wrinkling their spines when I set them pages-down.
Oh the guilt.
I tried to use bookmarks. I really did. But they always got lost.
Do you "abuse" your books? What do you think about dog-earing? Any pet peeves about what people do to their books?
