Re: [mythsoc] Lovecraft volume now in "Library of America"
- Well, most of my books are used, and while I do use all kinds of eclectic
things for bookmarks, I've always dog-eared them. Blame my dad. And I'm
passing on the trait, although I suppose I should teach the kids not to do
it to borrowed books.
It's better than not reading. And I thought this WAS purgatory.

- I use rubber bands as bookmarks, myself--if a cheapie. If not, a large hair
elastic that isn't too tight!
