I fold the top corner of the pages over to mark my place if I have no bookmark, but that's about all I'll do to abuse my books. I have to write my name in the cover if it's a school book, but that's more because I have to.
Yeah, I went to the Vatican when I went to Rome two years ago. They probably are fierce, although you wouldn't believe they were on first appearances. Their uniform is mostly yellow and includes a doublet, pantaloons and a beret.
Hehe, I could do that, I suppose, only I feel that I'd feel like I was defacing my book if I did.
a power cut eh? It's good to read books that consume your attention, it's a quality that i don't really have though if it's a really good book i can just about manage it..

Lets hope the maintenance man gets to you soon. Are shorts appropriate for a maintenance man?..
