I wanted a feature on my blog where I could discuss things with everyone, bookish and not. Feel free to join in and give your thoughts and opinions!
So my question this week is about those jackets/slip covers/whatever you call them that are always see on hardcover books. Do you keep them on while reading, or take them off so they don’t get damaged? Or would you prefer just a paperback so you don’t have to deal with them?
I like both hardcover or paperback, but I tend to like how hardcovers look on my shelf more. I almost always take off the jacket to help preserve it! I’ve had them ruined by other people before and it’s so upsetting.
Unfortunately if the book underneath is black, the ink from it tends to get on my fingers when I hold the book and I have no idea why. Does this happen to anyone else? And it’s hard to wash out sometimes! My last book I had to read with the jacket on so I had to be super careful with it!
I kind of really like library hardcovers because there’s plastic protecting the book but you can still see the cover while reading and not worry. I wouldn’t do that to all of my books but it does make it easier for reading.
