#crimesagainstcovers #photochallenge #dayfour. So this is from when we cleaned out my Nana's house after she passed away. She had a first edition 'Just So Stories' by Rudyard Kipling which originally was her fathers - it had no cover, ripped and missing pages and was extremely delicate, my brother tossed it not realising I wanted it. @ErinSueG

ErinSueMreads NOOOOOOOO!!!!! That's A TRAVESTY! 1y
CourtSmall Its all good, I got my youngest son to climb in and resue it. 1y

ErinSueMreads I mean isn‘t that the main reason to have kids? Good thinking.... 1y

Catching up on days 4 & 5 of #crimesagainstcovers - This is the worst place I've rescued books from. In these bins, they are liable to be ripped or bent, and it is the last stop for these donated books before the recycling bin. But the books I am happy to leave there? (Day 5) The books featuring the smiling face of people recently shown to be hypocritical and criminal. Grrr.

mabell Thanks for hosting another great challenge @ErinSueG ! 1y
ErinSueMreads Thanks for playing along! Always enjoy having you! Those big bins of books are always like equal parts anxiety and thrill 1y

A book I hated and destroyed....Sooooo I might have thrown a book away once... I had signed up for a fun monthly YA book box and they put this book in it..it‘s about talking to your loved ones about end of life care. It was the 2 year anniversary of my mom‘s death and I was completely horrified. I canceled my subscription and trashed the book. @ErinSueG #crimesagainstcovers

DivineDiana Just why! It makes no sense! 🙁 1y
Crewgurl @ErinSueG those were my feelings 😂😂 1y
Crewgurl @DivineDiana I have no idea!!! There were other things in the box too. I emailed the company and they were just like sorry you didn‘t like it 🤷‍♀️ didn‘t see anything wrong with the selection 1y

Regina's Song | David Eddings, Leigh Eddings
post image

For the last #crimesagainstcovers post, it‘s all about the book I‘ve been most tempted to wreck. Lord, there are a lot of contenders, but I‘ve got to go with Regina‘s Song by David & Leigh Eddings. What a train wreck. Bad enough the plot hinges on a college age girl tricking a cop into running a license plate to find the owner (she claims it‘s because the driver was cute, but he‘s her sister‘s killer), which is implausible. (Con‘t in comments)

BillBlume No cop with a brain would do this, but that‘s not the book‘s worst offense. Entire chapters are spent with the main character of this first person novel mansplaining how to build bookshelves. He mansplains lots of things and butts his nose into everyone‘s business. On top of that, it boggles the mind that a woman co-wrote this, because it‘s loaded with such sexist stereotype garbage. This book deserves to have nails hammered into it and... (con‘t) (edited) 1y
BillBlume ...a bath in lighter fluid before tossing it into a fire. I borrowed this book, so I couldn‘t commit any harm against it, but it so deserves it. Utter crap! 1y
BillBlume Did I mention I didn‘t like the book? #JustABit 1y

BillBlume Oh! Oh! And the ending!!! How could I forget. One of the dumbest endings to a book I‘ve EVER READ! Which involves this random moment of a fantasy-type element that gets no explanation whatsoever. It‘s like they couldn‘t figure out how to explain this nonsense, so they tossed it in to make the reader wonder what the &$)!? was going on. UGH!!! 1y
JSW @BillBlume why don‘t you tell us how you really feel? Don‘t hold back. Be honest. 😂😂 I LOVED this review! Never heard of the book but this made me laugh (which I very much needed). 1y
BillBlume @JSW I was just worried I might sound a touch melodramatic about this one, so I was aiming for a little restraint. I didn‘t even mention it‘s been more than a decade since I read this book. #MentionedItNow 1y
JSW Lmao!! Wow! I don‘t think I‘ve read any book I‘ve hated that much. I threw Perfect Days across the room because it was sick, but I didn‘t hate it. 🧐 anywho, thanks for the laughs. 1y
ErinSueMreads Oh @BillBlume you are an absolute treasure 😂😂😂 1y
BillBlume @ErinSueG haha! Thank you! 1y
ErinSueMreads I just posted info on the next challenge. It‘s going to be a good one 🙋🏻‍♀️ 1y
BillBlume @ErinSueG cool! Can‘t wait for it! 1y

Hatchet | Gary Paulsen
post image

Day 5 of #crimesagainstcovers oh man, I would love to have wrecked Hatchet! I can't even begin to describe what I would have done to it! Burn it, chop it up into little pieces, drowned it?! Too much? Can you tell that I disliked this book?


ErinSueMreads It‘s still cracking me up that you loathed hatchet so much 😂😂😂 1y
AsYouWish @ErinSueG Any book that makes me that physically ill to read it deserves my loathing, 😂 What is really funny is, that last week I was cleaning off one of my shelves and I found Hatchet, still in perfect condition, and I wondered to myself, why I had kept it all this time instead of giving it away or selling it? I want to say that one day I will try again, but I really don't think that will happen. 1y
