Do you keep the slipcases that come with your books, or throw them away?

You keep them.

>> No.16608414

I usually toss them. It's just one more thing I gotta deal with in order to get to my book. I just want to grab my book off the shelf as quickly and easily as possible.

Why the shelf though?
Or the covers? Rip those off. Preface too, right?

Of course you keep them, they're aesthetically pleasing and you already paid for them

You should break the spines too so your books open faster.

>> No.16608570

I keep them because I like the rush of air that comes out when you pull the book out

Discard. Shelf space is more valuable than tacky covers

Do you think if you told someone you were planning on taking off your eyeliner/lipstick it would be appropriate for them to ask

I rip them off in disgust then make new ones so all my slipcases match. Don't you?

surely you would but a cheap paperback with small print and fewer pages instead of a fancy slipcase edition then

why would I pay the money for a book that comes with a *slipcase* and not keep it

Most of the time I do but occasionally there'll be a set which only comes in a slipcase or I'll see a dirt cheap used copy where I'd not save any money buy purchasing the cheaper paperback.

>> No.16608618

>>16608398
The only reason I buy a slipcased book is because I liked the book and probably read, and still have, the paperback. It looks cooler in my "library" rather than the dog eared, age chewed paperback. And it reminds me, "Yeah, I need to read that one again". Of course, in my original paper back

I keep them. If it even has a slip cover, then it's some kind of special edition, and if I dish out money for a special addition, then it's for aesthetic reasons.
Either that, or it's a box set, and then why wouldn't I want to keep my books together?

>> No.16609574

Keep them, obviously. They reserve the space on the shelf that the book should be returned to.

Nah, luckily there are no slipcases in my Goyndle Kikereader™
