really liked it

A friend loaned me this book long ago. It was his absolute most favorite book at the time. So I cracked the spine and moved right in. When I'm really into a book it becomes an extension of my left arm and tends to get in the way of meals. When I finally returned it, full of crumbs and tea stains, the cover had somehow gone missing. My friend was unhappy with me but I had thoroughly enjoyed his book. Thanks, Nathan.

J It was a long time ago! We were young! What did we know about literature? I was taking a philosophy class at the time - everything seemed so deep and meaningful...

Is it really bad?

Ulrich Krieghund I'm sure you purchased him a new copy. That would only seem just. I wouldn't have thought of that at the selfish age of 17, but the 40 year old version of myself would not return a book without its cover to a friend. Not if I expected to keep that friend.

John McR What Ulrich said. Also, please don't crack spines! Get a heavy beanbag snake, or make one. Or a fist-sized rock to keep the book open.

J We are still friends! And I no longer crack spines. I am (almost) completely reformed! Honest!

J (fingers crossed I haven't mentioned my appalling tendency to dogear pages or underline especially fine sentences)
