I try not to read in the library. I don't know why but the presence of studious people seems hazardous for me.

I used to but not anymore. These days I prefer reading a brand new book I just bought rather than a used library one. I went into a library a week ago and opened a book. I saw some stains on the pages and couldn't help but wonder what they were from. It's just gross...

There is nothing better than a brand new book in perfect condition.

Plus that new book smell is heavily. It tingles my brain letting it know we're about to go on an adventure.

I never notice the new book smell. I only notice how a book smells if it is used. I only ever purchased one used book though...I refuse to pay over $900 on a brand new copy. >=(

The only bad thing about buying brand new books is when they start getting little bits of wear and tear. It makes me sad...of course...nothing is more devastating than buying a new book that arrives bent or with a page coming halfway out. >_<

I have to ask. What book was it that would cost 900 bucks?!

Yes, I hate it when the book gets worn out as well. But nothing ticks me off more than a friend borrowing your brand new book and returning it back as if they have used it for 9 years.

She bent the cover and folded the corners so she could remember where she left off! I was so heart broken when I got it back. After taking good care of it too.

Well the book is no longer that expensive but at the time they were no longer printing it and hadn't been for many years and there were only like 2-3 sellers out there. The book is Magic The Gathering: Arena. There are quite a few copies available now so the price went way down. To get one still in perfect condition though most seem to be selling for $100 or so. >_>

I have no friends to loan books to but with my brother I only lend him a book after many many threats upon his life should it return to me with any marks in it at all. Typically he decides it is best not to borrow it and finds his own copy.

Bending corners to mark a place...that is what bookmarks are for. D= I think I would cry a little if someone bent corners on my books. I would have to buy a new copy to replace it.

Hell, yes.

Here's a funny thing. When I was in high school, my English teacher decided to bring her class in the school's library. Our task was to search and make a list of proverbs.
I was too naive and computer-illiterate (probably even now). My colleagues done their assignments in seconds since they used the computers in the area. On the other hand, I went old school, looked at the catalogs, and actually searched for a book that contained proverbs. My teacher gave me a look of concern.
In my case, at least I knew how to use catalogs.

In addition,
my first trip in a library was not that spectacular. It's not what's inside, it's when I came out after school hours. When I headed home, a group of multi-ethnic guys jumped on me. One guy tried to tackle me, some thrown fruits and rubbish, and others were pushing and throwing punches. It was about to get worse till a white couple in a car stopped and holler at the offenders. The couple offered me a ride, but I reluctantly refused because I felt the whole event was cliche.

During lunch, my middle school was organized on making students get their meals; lining them up either by rooms or by grades. Unfortunately, after the incident, the next day in the cafeteria, I ended up sitting next to the guys who tried to jump me. Obviously, they confiscated my food by force by licking their hands and dipped them on my food--telling it's their dibs.
