My Biggest Book Sin

Everyone in the reading community has one thing that they do that others frown upon. Whether it’s borrowing a book and not returning it or reading the last page first, everyone has a book sin.

My book sin is… dog-earing pages. But let me justify my reasoning and explain a little bit more. I only dog-ear paperback books. I feel like paperback books are meant to be loved and used. It’s impossible to keep a paperback pristine if you’re going to read it, they are just too easy to damage. The more worn a book is the more it has been loved, you should see my paperback copy of The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy, they have highlights and dog-ears galore. I know that the little bent edge of a page is a real pet peeve for most readers, but for me it’s just another sign of love.

What book sin are you guilty of? Let me know in the comments.
