Just read the "Shithouse Reading" thread and got thinking about the quirks I have when reading a book, such as the prefered material when riding the porcelain charger.... I read somewhere that you can tell alot about a persons character by these little quirks, I don't know what they mean or indeed if thats true but you can definatly categorise people into two distinct groups - those that page fold (me!) and those that use bookmarks! I'm a page folder overer and proud! It drives my other half mad, he's uses a book mark - (these people can be sub categorised into those who use proper "purchased" bookmarks and those who use whatever's to hand e.g. train ticket, photo, letter, scrap paper etc...) he's very regimented with his books, all sized off on the shelf, all dustcovers accounted for and all in ornamental condition. Me, I get to the end of whatever im reading and fold the page over, my books generally look dog eared and well read, i've lost countless books lending them out and not having them returned...on the other hand using the same method i've proffed some good un's to make up for it. But if i read i good book, i feel duty bound to pass it on. When I get a book the first thing i do is turn the pages to the photos, i'll then turn to the back page and have a sneaky read of the closing line..... I'm not sure what the categories say about you but i reckon you either fall into one or the other and I cant be alone in these little reading rituals?? Am I?
