    A woman’s curse is her purse.

    A libarian wiill also tell you to use a bookmark and the reason why, Caulfield.

    I’m a librarian so I’m with Mrs. Olsen on this one. I’m actually kind of surprised that Caulfield thinks proper book care is annoying, one would think he’d be in favor of it.

    I am surprised that Caulfield knows what a zeppelin is. I could understand him calling it a blimp.

    Not sure what her purse has to do with it. But I did know a woman who carried a regular purse inside her zeppelin-sized purse.

    I’m pretty certain Caulfield knows a lot more than me, and I am probably older than dear Mrs Olsen.

    Caulfield is alluding to the idea that large heavy purses cause back problems. Hence, he is surprised that Mrs. Olsen is more worried about the book’s spine than her own. (P. S. You can have my large purse when you remove it from my cold, dead body … with a forklift.)

    … not to mention the effect of heavy backpacks on young students. If you can worry about the spines of inanimate books, can’t you also be concerned about… oh… the humanity? : )

    Yaakovashoshana… LOL!

    Your book is your friend, you protect it, and it will protect you. Oh! – wait that’s a fire arm, never mind.

    Many years ago I used to dog ear pages, then i noticed the corners would fall off after a year or so, converted to using a bookmark for the last 45 years. Books are our friends.

    I won’t comment on Caulfield’s behavior, other than to say that he is once more doing what he does best: being a brat. I’d like to know, though, what’s up with Frazz? Is he being ironic in that last panel? Is he speaking literally, or being wry?

    I’m not going to waste my time worrying about how I handle my current book, a used former library book hardcover novel I bought for $2. Besides, I can’t find my bookmark half the time, so I do put it face down at times.

    I carry a big purse to conceal what’s inside.

    My dad’s current book’s binding got totally destroyed somehow. Now it has no binding or cover whatsoever. It’s just loose pages held together with a binder clip.
