Here's something which I thought might be worth sharing. It's from an old, old guide on the proper care of books and shows how to correctly open a book for the first time.I for one have never followed this advice; I usually broke the spines of my new books, just to show them who was the boss.
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
