Sunday Salon - Mischief with Books

Tonight is what my town has always called Mischief Night.  The night before Halloween that kids or mostly teenagers go out and teepee a yard or throw eggs at a house.  You know do random mischief. This got me thinking what random mischief have you gotten into over a book?  Have ever damaged a library book?  or Heaven forbid stole a book?  

I have to say I have never stolen probably at least once damaged a library book but I don't really remember.  The most I have gotten in trouble with over a book is for reading a V.C. Andrews book in English class during a lesson.   And even that was mild as the teacher didn't want to really discourage me from reading just not during the lesson.

I've never gotten into trouble over a book (that I can think of) but I do remember when I was younger & my wee brother kept annoying me while I was trying to read, then we hear this ripping sound. He tore a page of my book. I then proceded to beat him with it lol! So, I guess, he was the one to get into trouble because of a book :)

Once I dropped a library book into the bathtub while I was taking a bath. I dried the book off fairly well, I thought, and, several days later, tried to simply drop the book into the return slot at the library, but a librarian saw the slightly wavy pages of the book and called me down for my crime. I paid for the book, though I felt she was making a big deal out of nothing. Now, as a librarian myself, I'd be aghast if someone did the same thing.

Nice prompt.

I have spilled on a book or two...egads! From eating snacks while reading.

I can't imagine purposely damaging a book!
