Yeah but it gotta be well worn from pure out reading from me, I'm never afraid of reading a book even if it will hurt it. Ofc each it to their own.
It's not a waste, just dont want it to be the only thing I do a day.

I have a few books that are worn purely from reading. My copy of Dreamcatcher by Stephen King I've read a minimum of six times (it's my go-to book for rereading when I just want something I've read before) and it's pretty run down. It doesn't help that I bought it second hand to begin with.
Apologies for cutting our conversation short, but I really have to get to bed. I worked all day and normally would have been asleep two hours ago. A good night to you (or good day, depending on where you are in the world. Peace and love from Canada.)

Even if it's a new book or old I try to keep them as new as possible, although I got no especially old books, unless I find them interesting and fun to read I dont buy them, and that I sneak borrow some from the family when I find the chance.

When you reread books you always goes through them pretty quickly, about half the time of what it took originally. I also try to not spend to much time reading a day since it feels like you lose the day if you do that like when you sleep to long.

That's a good way to keep them. I see a well-worn book as a happy book. It's all a matter of personal choice. I try to keep dirt and food away from them, obviously, but I don't feel like ink will do any harm.
All I really do (when not in school or working) is sew and do art, so I find reading to be a nice break. I don't see it is a waste. I see it as an adventure.

I cant bring myself to do that, just feel I have to keep my books as intact as possible xD
If it's only a line or something I usually finds quickly after I open the book.
I dont go through that many books, usually goes for book series of pretty large books so they last a while.

I can understand that. I have a few really old books (oldest being an 1899 edition of Boswell's Life of Johnson) that I keep in top condition, as well as a few newer but old-looking leather-bound editions of ancient medical texts (ie The Aphorisms of Hippocrates, De Mortu Cordis, etc.) that I refuse to even breathe on too closely. But if it's a modern thing, generally 1960-onwards, I'm okay with highlighting and such.
I read pretty quickly (I read The Lord of the Rings for the second time in two days), so I can get through quite a bit.

I can understand that, prefer owning my books also, nice feeling to always know you can pick it up and read them.
If I forget I usually ends up rereading the whole serie.

As do I, I really do recommend the series of Eragon cause to me it's purely an amazing story and will likely be my favorite all time book series for a very long time.

I'm pretty good at remembering exactly where on a page something is, whether I remember the exact page or not, so it doesn't take me too long to find things. I'm also one of the fiends that highlights her favourite parts and dog-ears pages instead of using bookmarks, so owning my own books is also a polite measure to those I would otherwise borrow from. (I treat my friends' books well.) When someone borrows a book of mine, I ask that they also highlight their favourite parts in a different colour, signing their name in that colour in the front. I find it gives the book more personality.
I will definitely read it! It's been on my list for a while. I didn't get much reading done this year (only fifty books, which was initially just my summer goal) due to school work, so I still have a lot of reading to do before I can get to it. I have the entire Redwall series, A Song of Ice and Fire, Tales from Earthsea (the series of them), and a few others.
