Oh, the Tragedy

If you haven't read Sherrie's blog post today over at Solvang Sherrie, go now.  Then, join me in the weeping and gnashing of teeth at the fate of these paperbacks.

[Yes, perhaps I'm being a tad dramatic, but this is coming from the girl raised in a household where book surgery was a routine occurrence.  My mom would painstakingly punch holes in each page and rebind even the flimsiest paperback.  Stat!]

Also, if you haven't signed up yet for my so-long blogfest, get thee here!  Come on, people!  I want to see some angst, some tears, some "good riddance"s!

  1. I do not think you are being a tad dramatic. I was horrified! I told Sherrie I'll probably suffer from nightmares because of her post! Ha ha. :-)

  4. Especially the guy at the end who rips the books up and throws part of it away. I mean...come on!! Even the heftiest paperback isn't that bulky.

  5. I can't understand why someone would rip a book apart, but I'm a bibliophile and a tight wad. ;)

  7. Thankfully, I was able to sleep last night. Definitely the most shocking thing I've heard this week, though.
