We Need To Talk About Beating Up Your Books

In celebration of raggedy-ass books.

Look, I'm not saying that I chop my books in half deliberately, like Meg Cabot did here.

Meg Cabot / Via

Or, uh, at all. But you might! It might make it way easier to read in the pool, or your luggage might be too heavy and you REALLY, REALLY want to finish the book. And that might be OK!


But there's something to be said for loving a book so much you throw it into every bag you have and carry it with you until it falls apart.

Nothing makes me happier than seeing a HP book being read so heavily it's falling apart.

Sometimes they're just old, and they've been loved for a long time.

Grr! When yr re-reading your favourite trilogy & book 1 is falling apart! #thegirlwiththedragontattoo #steiglarsson

And other times you just ride them hard from the start.

It looks a little beat up lol but I would suggest this book to anyone

Books are made to be loved. How we love our books depends on who we are as readers.

Daughter:"What are you doing dad?" Me:"Looking at your beat up book." D (giggling) "No it's well loved." @jk_rowling

Some of us just read HARD, OK????

@spaceeflower @itssbee_ @jk_rowling my book is falling apart I had to do it I wanted something from the actual book
