Book Blogger Hop: 19th-25th January 2018

Question:  When reading a mass paperback book, many people fold the cover back, as if they were reading a magazine. Doing this will eventually create creases in the spine. How do you feel about this common bookish habit?

Answer: I'm not bothered because a creased book is a book that has been read and hopefully loved. I know they don't look as tidy on a bookshelf but surely they are there to be enjoyed? Also, it can be difficult reading a brand new paperback and you need the break the spine to make it feel better in your hands?  That's my excuse and a habit I'll continue.


  1. I'm not big about keeping spines pristine and a book with a broken spine is definitely easier to read though I don't think I'd want any of my books bent backwards!

  2. I don't like to break the spines, but sometimes you have to stretch it a bit to see the words.

    Welcome to the BOOK BLOGGER HOP. I hope you enjoyed today's question, and I hope you can join us each week.

    Have a good weekend.
