    Oh my fuck this thread started off so normal and now I've got to some how figure out how to itch the inside of my brain! I can't even read a magazine if someone has bent the page, nevermind a book!

    Ha! Like she'd recognize a book if it crawled up her hooha.

    I couldn't do it either. The worst thing I would do is donate it to Goodwill or Salvation Army or something.

    I love books. I literally have thousands of them. I just don't worship them.

    I too love books. I'd hate to see classics and special editions or first prints destroyed, as well as rare or antique books. Or Stephen king.

    But books aren't sacred to me. Especially Novels that aren't classics, aren't especially good, are old and/or dated, etc. Or those silly romantic 'novels'.

    I'm with you. I won't say I'm uber-careful with my books (many of them have been heavily read, re-read, dogeared, highlighted and occasionally been spilled on) but I can't bring myself to throw them out. I still have the same copies of the Little House books that my mom gave me when I was five and they only bear a passing resemblance to a bound book these days.

    I used to be horrified at the thought of books being ruined but then I spent a couple of weeks cleaning in the house of a hoarder and after a few days was cheerfully hurling anything burnable on the bonfire. Yes, it was a waste. The whole fucking house was a waste. The whole life was a waste. After you've taken jam packed vehicle loads enough to overwhelm every thrift store for miles around, you start getting a bit meh about 'things'. I look after my books because i wouldn't have got them if i didn't want them. The exception being some beautifully bound crap romance novels that I picked out of a free bin and I've been cutting up and converting into secret hiding boxes for my nephews and nieces.

    Books may have been sacred things once but there's so much crap published now and, with rare exceptions, they are easy to obtain. I wouldn't deliberately destroy something rare or old however.

    I did love Daniel Handler's response!

    I don't quite understand (and can't have the volume on at work so sorry if it was explained) but what is her point to this? if it's just to look like there's books on the shelf... why not just stack the f'ng books on the shelf? is it for a hiding place? again, sorry if this was explained.

    I think books are sacred. The only way I'd destroy one is in the case of hoarding like Twitchy mentioned, but they're beyond repair at that point. I don't have a problem with people dog-earring their books (as long as it's not on loan from me) or making notes in them even. I can even forgive a coffee stain or two. But destroying them, I just can't do that and making them into a stupid decoration is also not right.

    I don't think there is a point, it's just for plain old storage.

    I see a lot of stores decorating with vintage books, and as long as I'm not going to send a display tumbling down, I pick them up and look at them. They usually don't have the guts torn out.

    One of my favourite pubs is like a deranged junk shop when you go in. It's filled with all kinds of bric-a-brac, memorabilia and books and magazines from every era you can think of. Gideon (the landlord) is quite happy for the customers to have a good rummage and a read and that's what makes it so great.

    I never throw away a book unless I really, really have to and send them to charity shops whenever I can. Even if I think something is kak there is bound to be someone, somewhere who'll enjoy it.
