Splash du Jour: Monday

Hard-covered books break up friendships. You loan a hard covered book to a friend and when he doesn't return it you get mad at him. It makes you mean and petty. But twenty-five cent books are different. 

-- John Steinbeck –

Have a great Monday!

I place the same value on any book, be it a hardcover or the less expensive version. A book is a book is a book.
Return my book or else...

I do too love my books so much that I have a hard time lending them to friends. Although they are aware of my obsession and never ask for the books. ahah

Hard-cover books break my back! They are way too heavy to carry consider I always have a few books in my bag.

I only entrust my books to friends who appreciate them.

No kidding Anonymous!
I get downright Shylockian on anyone who wants to purloin my stuff.
Book weighs two pounds?
That's the average elbow to forefinger!

Me too, [bunch of squiggly things] p [followed by more squiggly things].
True love means never having to say "Hand me back my books or else!"

No probs, Maggie.
Hey, just a question.
Are you Margaret Atwood, in cognito?

I'm with you man.
I'm a trade-paperback man!
