Dirty Little Secret is a meme hosted by the lovely ladies at Under the Covers! I haven't participated in such a long time (I'm a total slacker) but to go along with the Book Confessions from this week's TTT I've joined in on this week's discussion:
Book Abuse! What's the worse thing you've done to a book.
I'm definitely a reformed book abuser. I'm so ashamed to say that I used to dog-ear pages and bend the spines of my books. I was lazy and normally lost any store bought book mark, but now I use whatever is in sight to mark my pages- receipts, post it notes, business cards- you name it I've probably used it.
More recently though, I accidentally almost destroyed my copy of Defiance by C.J. Redwine. During the summer my favorite spot to read is at my pool in any sort of float so I can work on my tan and TBR list. This normally results in some pages being smudged with tanning oil or frayed edges of covers from my hands being wet, but nothing too substantial. However, while reading Defiance I accidentally dropped the book into the float with me! I recovered quickly, but not before the edges of all the pages got soaked. The book dried, but now its really lumpy and crinkly, but still readable!
