Top Ten Worst Things That Could Happen to a Book You Read

Don't you love reading, but hate it when something happens to a great book you are reading? Rant about it here, and add reasons you think fit in.

The Top Ten

1 The book gets damaged to the point it's unreadable

I used to have a lot of Harry Potter novels, but most of them got damaged to the point there were unreadable pages, watery writing, and broken backs on the books. It drives me mad! - Swellow

My copy of the 4th one got caught in between our car and its door. It was obliterated. - Yoshilord

Dropped #2 into a giant puddle. ☹️ Pages were stuck together, words smudged, and the whole book was covered in muck.

2 You try to change the page, but instead you tear it

This is why I use my iPad instead of reading books.

I prefer books because I don't have a good grip when holding tablets. - Swellow

3 The book gets lost and you can't find it

I lost a book once, and now I have never been able to find the book again. I borrowed it off someone, and thankfully she understood. - Swellow

4 Someone scribbles over the book in dark-colored pen

Has happened, and it has annoyed me. Thankfully there are ways to get around it, though. - Swellow

I've have done that before, when I was younger. - funnyuser

5 The book ends too soon

This is why you should always get a book over 400+ pages, because it will keep you entertained until you manage to reach the end. - Swellow

Like every story, it must end. But it's way to soon! - Fandom_Lover

6 You are unable to find the sequel/prequel to the book in stores

A reason why you should visit second-hand books at times. Got a whole set of Harry Potter here, and I couldn't find it anywhere else. - Swellow

7 Someone borrows the book and damages/loses it

Internet books. Solved. Can't lose it (Unless deleted) and can't damaged, well, the reader gets attacked by feels if it's this romance book, but nothing else.. - Fandom_Lover

Thankfully some people can be forgiving, but others can do it to intentionally bother you. - Swellow

Don't trust anyone with your books. - Yoshilord

9 The book is different from what you expected V 1 Comment
10 The book attracts a fandom that isn't very good

The Contenders
