This is going to be a quick post, but I’m really interested to hear a discussion about your reading habits! So, I’m currently reading a hardcover copy of Rivers of London, and as I always do, I took the dust jacket off my book in order to do my reading. This got me thinking about how common this is in the bookish community.
Almost every time I am reading a hard cover book I take off the dust jacket and store it until I have finished the book, because I never want to damage the beautiful illustrations!
I always find when I do try reading a hard cover with the dust jacket on I always seem to damage the edges and crumple it. Though this method often means I have a pile of dust jackets on my table before I get the time to put them back on my books and onto my shelves.
I was just wondering if any of you do the same or if anyone sees some benefits in reading with the dust jacket!
So, If you read your books with the dust jacket on or off I’d love to hear your thoughts!
