OSChamberlain @DGRachel yesssss. That's what happened with this one. But I use an alcohol pad and it comes right off. Good as new 3y
CaitlinSiem I hear ya. And the goober sticky crap that stays behind on the book is the absolute worst. 3y
OSChamberlain @CaitlinSiem yep! But my solution to that is a good scrub with an alcohol pad! 3y
Bookworm-Bobbie @OSChamberlain I hate this too, especially when they put them over the blurb. I shamelessly peel them off in the shop. I'm not buying a book with out reading the blurb! But thanks for the alcohol pad tip. 😉 3y
MrsV They should all use easy to peel off stickers! @OSChamberlain I will have to try the alcohol pads next time. 3y
DivineDiana Second the thank you for the alcohol pad tip! 3y
Gezemice Need to try the alcohol pad next time! Thanks for the tip! 3y
MeganAnn I hate this too! I always peel the stickers off as soon as I get home. @OSChamberlain he alcohol pad is a great tip! It drives me nuts to be reading and have to feel the stickiness the whole time 😩 3y
LauraBrook If I can't find an alcohol pad, smearing a little creamy peanut butter on the sticky parts, waiting an hour or so, and then wiping it off with a damp cloth usually works too. You know, if it's not fabric or something, obvi. Love Barnes and Noble stickers, they come off easily and cleanly, with zero residue! Makes me want to scream at everyone else who doesn't use that kind! They make them, everyone should use them! 3y

First day of poetry class and my professor made everyone write a poem in 15 minutes in which the only rule was you had to begin with the last line of one of the poems we read in class. Naturally, mine became about books. Lol.
