Musing Mondays (4)

Musing Mondays is a weekly event, hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading, where you are asked a book/reading related question and you answer with your own thoughts on the topic.
What do you do with the book before you start reading it?

I usually just dive straight into a book when I'm going to read it, but I always make sure that it's far away from anything that will damage the book (food, water, nail polish, nail polish remover, etc.) and I'll also fuss about how to open the book without damaging it (I'm obsessed with keeping my books in good condition).

Louise is an English student who is currently hiding in a fort made out of DC books. When she's not doing responsible things, reading, or blogging, she can be found watching movies or TV, playing video games, slowly going deaf from listening to really loud music, or making bad jokes on Twitter. She loves Muppets, shoes, and plushies and is always on the lookout for the next best polish in the perfect shade of blue. She hopes to be a Gothic/vampire author in the future and bring her own brand of vampire to life (no, they don't sparkle).


  1. I also am very careful of opening books! I don't want any creases or broken spines. Here's my MM:

  2. I didn't even consider that I don't read around anything that can soil/stain/spoil the book. But I don't read around nail polish, etc.

    I usually read the blurb on the book and any author info, then jump right in.
