Are you a spine breaker? Or a dog-earer? Do you expect to keep your books in pristine condition even after you have read them? Does watching other readers bend the cover all the way round make you flinch or squeal in pain?
OH!!! Don't even get me started!!!
But you did. OK. Just remember, you asked:
Do not break my spine! Do not dog-ear my pages! Don't let me see you doing it with your own books!
I realize, what you do with your property is your business. I just don't want to be an unwitting witness.
I don't lend books. If I hand you my book to read, it's yours. Except my mom, who, no doubt, did this to me.
And, I don't know why, but when I see someone eating while reading, it's traumatising! I can fully recall every time in my life that I have seen this dreadful scene! MY EYES!!! MY EYES!!!
I'm feeling a bit dramatic.
Oddly, all this being said, I don't care about the condition of a used book that I get (except, again, food stains). I am careful, however to treat them just as if they are pristine adding no further damage from my own hands.
In summation, your honor (if you're not honorable, stop reading now):
I would never remove a kitty's leg, however, I still would not reject, but would love and care for a three-legged kitty.
Now I want a three-legged kitty. Weird...
...and I am now emotionally drained.
