Did the Tribune eavesdrop on Falise and I?

It was almost a year ago that Falise and I started to talk about the idea of a different kind of book club.  The number of similarities  in our lives and likes  was comforting and  almost scary.  BUT, there is  one afternoon that is still extrememly vivid in my memory.  Falise came upon me reading and UNDERLINING in a book.  Seeing the horror in her eyes,  I almost thought it was the end of our partnership/friendship  Our first dissimilarity!!!  Falise sees the physical book as sacred, I see them as converations that I want to revisit from time to time. ( though granted, there some books that I won’t underline or make notes in the margins.)

The Chicago Tribune ran an intersting article in the Tempo section yesterday about the ethics of handling/or manhandling a book. http://www.orlandosentinel.com/features/lifestyle/chi-0830bookethicsaug30,0,2721844.story?page=1 They are looking for your  thoughts. ctc-tempo@tribune.com.   I am anxious to see the follow up story.
