Bookish Banter (14) - Book Stickers Are For The Birds

Monday, April 28, 2014
Welcome, welcome to Bookish Banter! This is a weekly blog post where I talk about bookish topics with Elizabeth of Redhead Reader and Ellen of Pottermorebooks!

This week's discussion is...

How do you feel about stickers on books?
Does it drive you nuts when you try to take them off, and the dready sticky residue is left over? Or do you just leave the stickers on them?

My answer...

This is one of my biggest pet peeves when it comes to buying books. I seriously loathe stickers on books. LOATHE them, I tell you!!!!! I do not want a price tag sticker left on my book, so of course, I have to peel them off, and when they leave that sticky residue on them...UGH!! SERIOUSLY?! I just can't.... 

The rage this fills me with is monumental. 

What happened to the days when we had Borders bookstores? I mean, at least, they knew what they were doing when they put barcode stickers on books. They just came off so beautifully, and left nada behind! 

Basically, I believe that stickers on books are a no no, and I refuse to leave them on my pretty books. DIE, BOOK STICKERS!!!

What about YOU?
How do you feel about stickers on books?
Do you hate them as much as me, or could you care less?


As always, thanks for visiting Pivot Book Reviews!

  1. Not a fan of book stickers at all! I always try my best to peel them off and then get rid of all the residue... Some are easier than others, but at least Amazon and The Book Depository books usually don't have any stickers!!

    1. I know! That's why I usually buy my books from them!! I found this product called Goof Off that usually gets rid of the residue though so that helps too!

  2. My bookstore has HEATHER'S PICK on books that are highly recommended. It doesn't bother me as much since it comes off so easily. But yeah, there are those that don't, which perfectly ruins the cover/back cover of the book. I feel your pain.

    1. Yeah, I don't mind it if they are the type that come off easily, but the ones that don't? That just drives me nuts!!

  3. I HATE IT when I go to peel off a sticker and see that it's going to leave a nasty residue behind. Usually I will just put the sticker back in place because I'd rather leave it than take it off, put the book back on my shelf, and have the residue get on my other books. :/

  4. OMG I hate it too! When I go to Barnes and Noble, I usually try to find a book that has the least sticky stickers so I can take them off lol

  5. I HATE STICKERS. I bought an almost pristine copy of Dark Life by Kat Falls, but it's ruined by the residue on the front cover. Ugh, it's terrible. :/
