I want to get some feedback from the readers out there. Do you keep the book jackets on your books?
I for one always take the book jackets off, preferring to see the spine of my books. In fact there is an added benefit to this habit of stripping down the books on my shelves. If I do happen to see a still jacketed book, it’s a dead giveaway that I have not read that book yet.
But, I’m sure there are those readers out there that don’t consider the book jacket as just a throwaway item. And I admit some of the artwork on book jackets is too wonderful to go to waste. I’m torn. But most of all, I’m really curious. So let me know in the comments below if your books are still wearing their jackets?
