Dog earing is disgusting.
I don’t read books because I am a nerd
people keep giving me bookmarks and i just carry on dog earing. what am I like?
Probably 100% overlap between dog earers and people who regularly lose keys/phones/wallets etc.
I have never lost any of those items
And people who get “buckle rash” on their guitars
Weird thing to lie about but ok
I get a really bad mark on my shoulder from my strap, I think it’s just too cheap and thin so it digs in but maybe it’s connected to my propensity for losing stuff.
i only dog ear paperbacks I own and DGAS about. Would never do it to a “nice” book or a borrowed book
I tell you what makes me want to vomit - people licking a finger before using it to turn a page, especially with a paper or magazine (i do have a weird aversion to wet paper though)
Seems like it would be more hygienic to lick the page
Just rub it under your armpit, quicker.
Maybe “dog earing” means something different to what I think it does
I have a kindle but pre-kindle I was a dog ear where i’d fold it all the way to the middle part of the page
Quite surprised at how many people read books on a screen. Even academic articles I have to print out, just can’t concentrate on digital formats at all.
Kindle is easier than e.g. phone
