Books (74/365)

    Newer Older

    Day 74: For some reason, I can't throw away my old textbooks. I foresee the possibility that one day I'll have to reference an old textbook to refresh myself on some forgotten topic. Unlikely, I know, since this hasn't ever happened. Still, I can't throw my textbooks away. Ever since I was a small child in grade school, I've held textbooks in such high regard. That's why when I was in college, I could never bring myself to highlight in any of my books or even resell them. I've never even dog-eared my books. I'm weird that way, I guess.

      i used to feel that way...until I moved and had to carry heavy boxes of text books that I haven't cracked open since college and realized that I would more likely Google any info I needed ;o)

      Nice shot! You're not alone when it comes to saving books or not mutilating them. I can't underline and highlight and I cringe if I see someone crack a spine.
