« The Midwich Cuckoos, John Wyndham | Main | A Hodgepodge: Weekend Reading Notes »



I have been frequently tempted to do this with my bigger reads, but haven't taken the plunge yet. You are a pioneer!!


It is a daring deed, I agree, but how liberating it is too..

Buried In Print

*shudders* I'm not sure we can still be friends. *winks*


I applaud you for your courage! Well done!


I hope I won't have to do this again, but in this case you have no idea how much happier I am to be reading this book. I have been carrying my little section all over with me and reading every day! Actual progress. :)


It is liberating! And I am not defacing it in a bad way--I only did it so I could actually read it in earnest. Now I can tote it around no problem!


I know, I shuddered for a moment, too. Now, you *know* you have secret wishes to do the same to 'Q' ! ;)


Poor book. But in the long run, it is going to get even more attention and love! :)


I have a vague recollection that when it was first published you could buy an edition of several volumes in a slipcase - but I had the big, fat one and never managed to finish it.


Shocking! It's your book, you can do with it what you want. Frankly, I think the author would prefer that you read the book rather than keep it in pristine condition.


Now that would have been perfect for me. I didn't realize there was a slipcased version. I seem to have created my own! ;) I am trying hard to keep the momentum up as you can see. It is the third time trying and I am determined to finish it (I really enjoy it and it is not hard going--just such a big breath of a book)!


That's exactly what I thought. It would be different if I cut it up out of frustration, but it is only to make it easier for me to spend lots more time with it!
