Dust Jackets


So, I love hardcovers but what are you supposed to do with the dust jackets when you are actually reading them?

For the shelf it’s simple, jacket on. When reading though, jacket or naked? Most books are pretty plain when they are naked so I like the jackets, but when I am slouching around reading there is the potential for the jacket edges to get scuffed, which I obviously don’t want.

So what do you guys do with the jacket when you are actually reading? Or does the jacket drama put you off hardcovers all together? On BookTube I have seen a few people just showing the jacket in wrap-ups because they have leant out the book but to me such complete separation seems like madness! What do you guys think?
