I read in a grammer book named "English is Easy" that there is no possessive of nonliving things untill we personify them ..if this rule is correct so how this above sentence can be as ..the book's cover ,the table's leg ? According to the rule as book and cover are nonliving so it should be "rhe cover of the book" and "leg of the table"...plzz help
