This week on the bookish internet

  • Christine Ro takes on the bookish annoyance of the week—shelving books backward for aesthetic reasons—and comes up with some intriguing defenses. I’m never going to do this; I know it would drive me insane. (Book Riot)
  • Rebecca Foster has tips for fixing up used books in your collection. (Bookish Beck)
  • How Tajja Isen learned to DNF books. I mostly like this post because of the following quote:
    • “Purchased on a true-crime high after I read Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood, Mailer’s 1100-page epic didn’t just show me the value of abandoning a book. It gave me the satisfaction of getting your money back once you return it to the bookstore (true story, and the only time that’s ever happened to me).” (Book Riot)
  • Dhonielle Clayton is a sensitivity reader. (Vulture)
  • I love reading stories about science being used to “read” ancient books that are so damaged they can’t be opened. (The New York Times)
