As a marker/bookmark/tracker Do you do it? Or do you prefer to use a book mark/remember which page no. you got to?

I always have done, even for first edition books, but even that's a regret now for books like harry potter which are falling apart now anyway.

I always dog-ear the pages. So many bookmarks of mine fall out and I lose the page, This way is much easier. My friend on the other hand won't even break the spine of a book!

If it's novels: Hell no, too cringey
If it's textbooks: Pleaseee. I hate textbooks anyway :lol:

I do use bookmarks (usually just whatever scrap of paper I find closest to hand rather than a proper bookmark, though). But I'm okay with people bending pages, and I especially don't think there's anything wrong with breaking spines! Although rows of pristine books look lovely in bookshops, I think there's something kind of sad about a bookshelf in someone's house where the books are so neat it doesn't look like they've ever been opened. I prefer it when they look a bit battered and well-loved.

Ikr, its so annoying when bookmarks fall out. But on some books the spine just... breaks.

Screw textbooks, but why would folding the novels be cringey? or would it depend on the book in question

yep, I've used the scrap paper method befoe :yes:
Library books seem to have the most broken in spines, especially the paperbacks - makes it easier to holding the book easier.
Or if they're not broken in it might mean the owner hasn't gotten around to reading them yet

Exactly - the odd unread-looking book on a shelf isn't so bad, but rows and rows of them make me think the person just likes hoarding books but not reading them. :lol:
