A little rant about….Used BooksPosted: March 5, 2010
…and I have a fear of libraries.
I haven’t borrowed a book since I was 15 (well with the obvious exception of maybe 8 college books that I took from the library, touched as little as possible and never used).
Basically I have some issues with other people’s dirt.
And also with books.
Uhm, how to explain this……well I’m very particular about my stuff and EXTRA particular about my books.
I don’t bend the spines.
(as my brother found out)
I DO NOT WRITE IN MY BOOKS!!!!!
(as Lyndsay found out)
If a book page bends in my bag, I literally have a minature breakdown.
I also have some issues with other people handling my books.
FACT: Everybody picks their nose.
FACT: The majority of people don’t use tissues.
People also sneeze and cough without covering the necesary face holes when they’re alone.
Some people scratch their bums, and so on, and so on.
And for a lot of people, reading is a solitary activity.
So put two and two together and you get really disgusting used books.
So I never use libraries.
Or buy secondhand books.
Or feel comfortable sitting on someone else’s couch.
What this post was supposed to be about was the great selection of fun books Urban Outfitters have in right now….to buy….not to borrow…..never to borrow….
