I love this old poster. Wouldn't that be a great one to have in the library? I would put this up when we do our 9th grade history lessons.

that is a fantastic poster! I'm used to be really bad about folding pages. I tried to get better about using a bookmark, but found that most the time I ended up sticking in a highlighter or pen, which is probably worse since it leaves a big lump and doesnt let the binding close all the way!
but usually book abuse is happening to my own books... so I guess that isn't as bad.

Yes Phoenix. :) I tend to put in random scraps of paper. I used to put in post-its but then I studying archiving and learned that the glue damages the paper so I stopped that.

I really love these old posters. I kind of want them so I can up them up in the library.
