*Habits including but not limited to: using the pages as a coaster, ripping corners, and intentionally cracking paperback spines.
Needless to say, book readers everywhere lost their minds.
When asked why she had developed these habits, Esme said in a follow-up video, "I annotate books because I like reviewing books (I do it on my Instagram), and this makes it easier to go back and review a book, I think."
In response to the confusion over the to-do lists, she said, "Reading is my main form of procrastination, and if I put a to-do list on the front, I have to check everything off on the to-do list before I'm allowed to read the book, so this holds me accountable."
Oh, she also showers with her books. This actually sounded like something I would do, so I tried it. I can confirm that it's very relaxing.
Esme even made a tutorial for showering with your books.
