Sunday Morning Sadness: My paperback copy of It has finally succumbed to its broken spine.

As you guys know, I went to see Stephen King at UMass Lowell last Friday, December 7. I didn’t find out until we were already at the hotel in Lowell that he wasn’t doing a signing, so I had brought some books with me (my ancient paperback of It and my hardcover first edition copy of 11/22/63). I guess all the traveling and jostling around in my duffel bag really finished the job of destroying my copy of It because now it’s in two pieces:

What do I do now? It’s currently sitting on my bookshelf held together with a rubber band, but it’s not like I can really read it in the state it’s in. And I do have that 25th Anniversary Limited Edition of It that Andrew bought me for Christmas last year, but it’s so huge it might be hard to read. Plus, the illustrations really freak me out…

Have you ever read a book to tatters like this? If so, what did you do? Did you buy a new copy or continue to read your old one?

  1. I’ve not read a book to that state, but I lent a book once that returned to me close to something like that. I told the person to keep it and I bought a new one.
