Dog-eared books or those in which corners have been folded down to mark a spot like dogs do with their ears, are commonly seen as an indication that someone enjoyed reading it multiple times. Some may consider this action disrespectful, while others view it as showing that its reader enjoyed reading this text numerous times.
Dog-earing books are achieved using different techniques. One approach involves folding down one corner of each page with one hand to quickly mark your spot without stopping to find a bookmark or creating a minor crease that keeps pages turning down while also being less likely to damage books.
Dog-earing can serve as an efficient bookmark. When you come across an incredibly captivating passage, dog-ear the page to locate it later – this makes a great way to mark passages you want to revisit or remember quotations!
“Dog-eared” books are often associated with being well-loved and read repeatedly, evidenced by their corners bending down or the spine becoming damaged. While some may perceive these books as damaged, others see them as proof that the reader has advanced immensely throughout reading them.
Dog-eared books indicate success in the publishing industry, showing readers enjoy them and reading more than just sitting on shelves collecting dust! With so many new books being published each year that don’t reach their intended audiences, well-read books often indicate that their author has found an audience and become successful!
Dog-eared pages serve a valuable purpose in publishing. First, they help maintain the appearance of new books even after multiple readings; they protect their spine and aesthetic features like paper quality; finally, dog-eared pages help readers quickly identify which books belong to whom, which is particularly helpful when setting up book clubs or lending libraries.
