there are 3 schools of thought here upon which people are overreacting: 1. the one about destroying the books to get the spine 2. the one about how stupid the way is to get the spine — using a cutter to remove every single leaf of every single book (there are much more efficient ways you know) 3. the one where she mentioned “i have a wall in my office where i taped a bunch of pages up there”. she has an office? of what???? both #2 and #3 let her do whatever she wants with the books she paid for.. and yet! bottomline is, people are reacting about her crass stupidity.
