5 Things I Need Explained About Books – #fanfun

Don’t get me wrong. I love paperbacks/hardbacks and have read them for years. I also have crappy eyes so eReaders have saved some of the hassle of reading by allowing me to adjust the print without resorting to buying large print books. But there a couple of things that I don’t understand about books. If you have the answer, please share!
1. French Flaps and Deckle Edges
These are supposedly done to make the book pretty. Deckle Edges are where the pages are cut unevenly and French Flaps are flaps on the back and front cover. Different from a hardback book with a dust jacket. Do you think they make the books pretty? Fancier? Do you like these touches?

2. Sniffing Books
Some people like sniffing books. Do you? What do they like about the smell of books?

3. New Book Smell
Some say there is a new book smell that they can’t resist. What do you think?

4. No Dog Ears!
If it’s your own personal copy I don’t see anything wrong with dog ears to mark your spot but others find this absolutely unforgivable. What do you think?

5. NOT Cracking the Spine
Some people when I get a paperback book the first thing is to mark off every fifty pages by cracking the spine. Others find this a horrible practice and never crack the spine of a book. What do you think?

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
