Last month when I did the Book Snob Book Tag on BookTube, I started thinking about other things that I am definitely very particular about when it comes to books. As it turns out, I am a bigger book snob than I initially realized! Check out my latest video video and let me know if any of these things bother you, too! https://youtu.be/wMp_dYyTtTQ #booktube #youtube #bookvlog #booksnob #dustjackets #moviecovets #massmarketpaperbacks #librarybooks

EadieB @Butterflyamore Sorry to see that Elliot passed away! He was so cute! In regards to DustJackets, I love them too. I bought a book that didn't have a jacket and made my own by taking a picture of the cover from the Amazon app and printed it out on paper and taped the papers together. I'm not at home or I would show you the cover that I made. I take the jacket off when I read the book but I would never throw it away. I put it back on after reading. 3mo
EadieB @Butterflyamore I also like to remove the plastic covers from library books I own. I hate when they put the barcode on the back of the cover and cover up some of the wording from other's reviews or the description of the book. I hate to get a book where people have bent the edges of pages to mark their spot. I also am a book repairer. I'm forever putting tapes on the backside of older books whose jacket is ripping. Tape bindings that are apart too (edited) 3mo

EadieB @Butterflyamore I like reading hardcover but sometimes find the trade of mass market a lot easier to travel with. I don't like descriptive sex or bad language in books. I love beautiful poetic writing too where I will read every word. But other styles don't bother me either. Never heard of putting bar codes on the front. Sales stickers on the front are annoying too. I always peel them off. I don't keep books after I read them so I'm not too fussy. 3mo
Butterflyamore @EadieB Thank you. It‘s been very difficult emotionally. We did not expect this to happen. Creating a cover for one without a dust jacket is a really good idea! I might have to do that for the one I mentioned. 3mo
Butterflyamore @EadieB Yes, I don‘t like those sale stickers either. I‘m usually okay with profanity, as long as it isn‘t ridiculously out of control, but I‘m not a fan of descriptive sex scenes either. 3mo
EadieB @Butterflyamore Making the cover was a lot of fun. I'll have to find the book or I may have sent it on to one of my book swapping sites and I probably explained the cover to the person I sent it too. But I may still have it. 3mo
EadieB @Butterflyamore The profanity that I dislike is when they use the F word throughout constantly when it is not necessary. That really bugs me. I think I mentioned the book YOU by Carolyn Kepnes. Found that really bad for descriptive sex and language. 3mo
Butterflyamore @EadieB Yeah, I thought I had wanted to read that but not now, based on what you‘ve shared. I do feel using the F word repeatedly really takes away from the value of the story. The sex stuff - I don‘t know - it‘s just so awkward to read for me. I really am not interested in the sex lives of other people. 3mo

Part 2 of the Bookish Box Special Edition!

I am so in love with these dust jackets. These were completely worth the entire cost of the box 😍

There‘s character art on both sides and I tried to show as many as possible

MAY 13 PROMPT: #Saga

Give Me Thy Vineyard is not as much of a #saga as some of the longer works that I have in newer copies, but for #coololdbooks, this book seemed the best fit. It‘s a family drama, a love story, a coming of age story, and a work of religious devotion all wrapped together. This copy was printed in 1949, and given to my Father-in-Law in 1953. Still in remarkable condition!

ReadZenRites The Author, Guy Howard, won $10,000 in prize money for this book, which had to be a huge amount at the time. 2y
ReadZenRites I‘m an idiot. This should say #OldCoolBooks 2y
Linsy Yes it is! That cover makes me smile. 😁 2y

#OldCoolBooks #day4 #DustJackets This is the oldest book jacket in my library. A few years ago, the hubby & I were on our way to the Hunter Valley for Easter when we were passing through a small town & noticed a church jumble sale on the side of the road. He headed straight to the pocket watches while I went straight to the book table. I managed to find some amazing Enid Blytons in really good condition for their age. This one was printed in 1956.

TrishB That‘s lovely 💕 2y
DebinHawaii Great find! 📚👍 2y

MrsMalaprop @LapReader I absolutely loved it. Slow & gentle in the beginning. Then building, along with the incredible waves. Really showcased the beauty of the south coast of WA. 👍🌊 2y

#OldCoolBooks #dustjackets when you find the oldies you never know if the dust jacket will be in good shape and protected like the Cary or scuffed and dinged up like the Wright . Love them both anyway.

Linsy So true! 2y

I don't have a ton of old cool books & just a few with dust jackets or covers. These two herb & seasoning cookbooks came to mind first. The one on the left has a plastic sleeve over its dust jacket-practical for the kitchen.😉These books were published in 1945 & 1965 respectively. Let's please not call the 1965 tagged book old though-it was published about nine months before I was born. #yesiknowimoldbutitrytodenyit 🤣

tpixie Lol and young for me, born in 1960!! 2y
tpixie Hope you are safe from earthquakes 2y
JMEdwards Pretty picture! 2y

saguarosally @DebinHawaii Are you on Big Island? I have some friends there right now and they‘re feeling the quakes and not too far from the lava. 😱 2y
DebinHawaii @saguarosally I'm on Oahu so a few islands away and so far no negative impacts here. I have friends on The Big Island but they are not too close to the evacuation site.😱Hope your friend stays safe! 2y
