Books You've Burned

It happens. You reach the end of a particularly torturous book, and you cast all indoctrination aside and do the unthinkable -- burn a book -- because, really, there just isn't another appropriate response. Of course, it could also be because you needed something to start your fire with and nothing else was handy. Or it could even be a book that you loved so much, or that was connected to a monumental moment in your life for which a pyre was fitting.

message 1: by Tayla (new)

Tayla Robichaud no matter how bad it is i dont think i would EVER burn a book


message 2: by Rosa (new)

Rosa Some “books” contain such evil that with each copy that’s destroyed, the world becomes a slightly better place.
Objectification. Misogyny. Exploitation of the helpless and vulnerable.
The late 60’s-early 70’s saw a glut of paperback pornographic swill of this kind, that I would have no qualms about burning.
