Guy Fawkes Night-Tasks 1 and 2


Task 1: Burn a book in effigy. Not that anyone of us would do such a thing, but if you HAD to, which book would be the one you’d sacrifice to the flames (gleefully or not)?


Goodbye, Moby Dick and your endless chapters about whale types!

Goodbye sperm whales, white whales, killer whales, blue whales and all the rest of ya!

Nothing against you, personally, but paragraph after paragraph of whale descriptions are BORING!


Moby Dick - Herman Melville,Frank Muller   



Task 2:  List your top 3 treasonous crimes against books.  Not ones you’ve committed, but the ones you think are the worst.


1.Borrowing a book and not returning it-be it to the library or to a friend. Bring those books back people!


2. Returning the book in unreadable condition. (Friend who dropped that book into the bathtub and returned it to me like nothing happened? Yeah, I'm looking at you here.)


3. Marking up a book-highlighting it or writing in the margins. You know that's not right, especially if the book is not yours! Stop it! No one thinks your thoughts are mind-blowing, they just think you're a jerk.
