Hello to all,
Do you write your name inside your book cover?
Nope, not since I was a very young kid.
I dont even like gift book to have a message.
I do not however I will write a note inside a bookcover for gift giving if it is either a new book or an average used book (non collectable).
Nope, I prefer to leave them blank.
The only book I currently own that I've put my name on the inside cover of is my Con Sketchbook. When I used to go to Comic Book Conventions more often I'd bring the sketchbook and have artists do sketches in it, and get signatures from writers and actors and often have them sign sketches of characters they've played or written.
No. Writing my name in books reminds me of school
I write my name in journals but not books.
Writing in a book? Blasphemy!
This. The only writing I abide inside a book is the author's signature
Wholeheartedly echoing this. I don't even like breaking the spine on new paperbacks if it can be avoided.
I don't do it as a rule, but I wouldn't have a problem with it. I guess I just don't have that sort of attachment to paperbacks... they're for reading, and rereading, again and again, until they fall apart. They're brought to the beach in summer and to the bathtub in winter and whoops, into the water it went, whatever, it'll dry. [STRIKE]If[/STRIKE] When it's too ruined, I'll get another one.
Of course, if the book's not in print anymore, that's a different thing.
No, but we printed up some custom bookplates to put in our books instead...
I do, because my mother-in-law borrows random books from me quite often and I don't always get them back. So now I inventory them all and have my name written on the inside front cover of every book I own. I have databases set up, a handwritten master list, and a card catalogue. I also have a lot of categories and subcategories. Which are color coded. And I have been organizing them like that since I was a kid. Just the name thing is new...
I think I need help...
I do not like dog eared pages or hand writing in a book. There are some exceptions such a as book given to someone that has a special meaning. Or of course it was signed by the author.
If I plan to keep it forever, yes. Alternately, if I think my sister might kidnap a book, then also yes, so there's proof that it's miiiiiine.
Same here, but it depends on the type of book. If it is a book that is important to me (like some volumes on theology and liturgy) I not only write my name but address and telephone as well, in case they should ever be lost. Also, I use bookplates in my collection of leather-bound books (mostly Easton Press volumes). There are few books in my library that haven't been read at least once, and most have been read several times!
Every Book I read and keep gets a sticker with my name and adress in it.
But never before reading...
I do quite like getting messages in books, though it's been a long while since anyone gave me a book. Adds some story to it.
I feel like I should have been doing this all along.
The only books I've written my name into recently are my CPA textbooks, and only because I keep one of them at work and I know there is at least one other person on my floor studying the same subject and I would hate to somehow end up with his filthy textbook instead of my own shiny one.
My name and date I got it.
Helps getting back books when you lend them to people, and its kind of interesting to look back on too.
I've got a book with a note inside that my father gave to my mother in like 1962 so I think its an interesting historical thing. Not like these books are going to need to be resold again
