Readers Invested in Skin Hunger

So what happens when you check out a book from the library?

Usually, nothing. But apparently this particular book had to be written about.

I finished Skin Hunger by Kathleen Duey the other day, and I flipped to the back page to find this:

So… what should I add in the back?

    You should write “Writing your opinions on library books is desecration of sacred ground!” People love a little irony.

    ROFL!! I’m simultaneously shocked and thrilled. I sort of think it’s awesome that people thought enough to comment. I also think, that’s what Goodreads is for, lol.

    Um, good luck?

    Hmmm, I like the idea of sticking a large post-it in the back and leaving notes in books I loved for the next reader. There’s something personal about reading the same copy of a book, but you usually don’t get that w library books. I’d leave a comment…in pencil:)

    Liesl – oh that gets bonus points. So funny!

    Ali – That’s EXACTLY how I felt. From the handwriting, it looks like teens or maybe younger…

    Kelly Bryson – Sticky note, now that’s the trick.

    So what did I end up writing? Nothing, sadly. I actually turned it in before I could add my own sticky note (I have a thing against writing in books. It took 2 years of college to convince me it is okay – in textbooks).

    That is SO awesome! You only hope that the readers are that into your books.
