Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about dust jackets.
Do you prefer books with a dust jacket? What do you do with your dust jacket while reading? Leave it on or take it off? (Question courtesy of Kim from Page after Page)
I am rather crazy about dust jackets. Bordering on ridiculous actually. I never leave my dust jackets on while reading. It leads to the frumpy edges that really drive me batty. I take the jacket off while reading and place it on my bookshelf. That is not the crazy part. I put a book of a similar size in the jacket so it maintains its shape. There is nothing that irks me more than having to reshape a dust jacket. Creases always end up in the wrong places and it just becomes frustrating. It probably sounds quite loopy and I have been told quite often that this is not normal behavior but I can’t help myself. I think it is best that I stick to paperbacks and avoid the dust jacket issue altogether.
