[i]hi mylotter! i am not a book reader myself but i have noticed on how my former elementary classmate takes good care of the books she reads. she has been a fan of[/i] sweet valley high pocket books back in the days wherein it has been one of the most popular books that most of the young girls read. whenever she buys new books, she reads it with care that she avoids its edges getting any scars from accidental folds and lines on the sides of the book. hahaha! she even covers them with plastic covers and whenever she is in the middle of the books she is reading, she doesn't open it widely to avoid any line streaks to it. are you this type of person who cares for the book so much that you read in? do you handle it with care? do hate seeing any folds on the sides of a certain book that you buy? happy posting and happy mylotting!

I handle all my books with care. Even after 2 years they look new. You can also see that I dont put my name on the books. I just mark the first page or a few other pages after that with a pencil. I dont find any special marking them with pen or even rubber stamping them.

Wow, nice. I wish I could take care of my books that way. See, I'm a total mess when it comes to taking care of books, I'm always like that. My books are always on the worst condition. But books I read, I let them get bit by the dust once in a while, but I do take care of them. Have a nice day.
