Would you rather have a friend that loses your books or one that dog ears?

I would rather have a friend that dog ears. I have lost plenty a good book to a friend who

never returned it. I actually had to go buy the book again because I never got the original back. I have since stopped lending books out unless I know I will get it back.

I try not to do it, but I am guilty to dog earring a page. So I can’t really hold it against someone for doing it. And as my best friend pointed out, it’s kind of interesting to see where someone marked a page and try to figure out why. Is that just where they stopped at the time? Did they want to mark the page because it had a significant passage to return to later? Hmmm. While I go get angry that someone else would mutilate something that doesn’t belong to them, I just bite the bullet and let it go. After all, at least I got the book back.

  1. I’ve been a dog ear-er my whole life. It’s so hard to break a habit when it’s just so easy to mark your place! I’ve gotten a lot better at it, but sometimes I catch myself doing it without even realizing. I actually kind of like when a book you own looks all creased and read. But I would never dog ear another person’s books!
