Thanks for Rebecca's blog Just One More Page for Monday Musings...
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)
PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your opinion in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks.
I either use one flap of the dust jacket as a bookmark or take it off for safekeeping. I then promptly lose the dust jacket and end up putting the rather bland-looking book back on the shelf when I'm through.
Somewhere, there are a bunch of cool-looking dust jackets hiding in my house.
My Dad has a good tip and by coincidence, just reminded me of it yesterday.
He said to keep the dust jacket of a book you lend for two reasons:
1.) for safe keeping
2.) to affix a sticky note on it stating who you leant the book to
Great tips, I think.
How did this come up, you might ask?
My Dad said he had this great book I might like and started telling me about it.
"Dad! I leant that to you!"
Gotta watch that man like a hawk...
