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 don't like dust jackets. Mostly because it means that the book is hardback and I like paperbacks just fine. Hardbacks are heavier and bigger and they don't fit into a normal handbag. Plus, they're uncomfortable if I want to read during a slightly boring class *blushes* . That's the reason why I don't have many books with dust jackets. But for the ones I have, yes, I take it off.
Another reason why I don't like dust jackets is that because usually, when you take it off, you'll get a book with black/gray/green cover that looks...well, in my humble opinion, it's ugly!
So no, no dust jackets for this reader.
