Quoting Robin Rendle

Your reading should be messy

After years of treating my books as if they ought to be preserved in a museum, I now believe that you should honor the books by breaking them. Read them all so messily! Fold them, bend them, tear them! Throw them into your backpack or leave them open in Jenga-like towers by the side of your bed. Don’t fret about stains or torn edges or covers left dangling off the spine after years of reading.

That is what a book is. That is what a book is for.

​Robin Rendle

I read on a Kindle Paperwhite these days. But I like this idea.
