I don’t. And that’s because I don’t have baths. (I know. Too much information.) But I understand it’s an occupation appreciated by many who engage in it.
As I said in my recent blog about the previously wet DaVinci Code, bathwater isn’t good for books, whether or not you want to resell the book. This is why I am constantly monitoring the Resident IT Consultant and his behaviour. He does read in the bath.
I allow him to read paperbacks, unless they are very special paperbacks, for some reason. Hardbacks I try to keep track of, and I remove the dust wrapper, because wet and later dried dust wrapper is not one of my most favourite features for a book. Crinkly and horrible.
What do others do?
And why can’t people wash, and then read?
(For obvious reasons I’ve had to give up on the idea of embellishing this post with a photo.)
