Many people enjoy a good book now and then – on vacation, when they’re waiting in line at the DMV – but other people live for books. They prefer them to Netflix, and if they’ve got a spare 10 minutes, they’d rather read than scroll through social media.
They’re a quiet but passionate lot, and that description extends to the treatment of books and other odd things that surround a book lovers life.
If you’re one of us, you know what I mean – and you’ll quickly realize that there is so much wrong with these 14 pictures.
14. FFS, America.
It’s called an editor. Does no one do their jobs anymore?
This Hardcopy ELA book is complete with useless hyperlinks and and unwatchable videos. Go American Education System from CrappyDesign
13. That can’t be an accident, right?
It’s some kind of reverse marketing ploy?
The only book in the store that’s wrapped in plastic is this one.. from mildlyinfuriating
12. When there’s a legit monster on your flight.
Why would you never want anyone to enjoy that book again?
Got bumped to first class (super sweet) only to witness this lady TEARING off the pages of the book she’s reading. from mildlyinfuriating
11. I suppose it’s job security.
And the jury is out on the “proper” way to shelve books.
10. I guess some people just want everyone to be as dumb as they are.
This makes me so, so angry.
9. First of all, congrats on all of the new books.
Those boxes also look rather large to house a single book.
Ordered 27 books from Amazon on a single order. Got 27 boxes with 1 book each delivered. from mildlyinfuriating
8. No, that’s NOT what books are for.
That’s not how any of this works.
This hotel doesn’t allow you to use books for their intended purpose. from mildlyinfuriating
7. If this doesn’t make you profoundly sad, we are not the same.
But also, why on earth doesn’t everyone use the easy peel price stickers? Argh!
This price sticker that ruined the cover of this 1908 book from mildlyinfuriating
6. This actually is so ironic, Alanis.
Or maybe it was the layout person’s fault.
I don’t think I should read this deign chapter in my book. from CrappyDesign
5. This was the idea of a sociopath.
Seriously just wtf is going on here.
Instead of putting in a bookshelf, this coffee shop cut the spines of the books and glued them to a shelf… from mildlyinfuriating
4. I mean it’s your book, you can do what you want.
But this makes me want to cry.
3. It definitely wasn’t a librarian who put in those stickers.
No one who reads would ruin the last page of a book.
This is the last page of a book in my schools library. This isn’t the only time it happened either. from mildlyinfuriating
2. There’s always gotta be one person.
I wonder if they open the packaging on everything ahead of time.
This store sells books wrapped in packaging so readers can pick a book from just a sentence. Somebody opened all of them. from mildlyinfuriating
1. I mean, it’s still better than turning down the page.
It looks far past the smelling stage, too.
Looking through an old cookery book I just found and there’s a squashed frog as a bookmark :/ from WTF
I’m dying inside a little bit more with every entry! Argh!
Which one of these was the hardest to look at for you? I can’t pick!
