Do you keep the slipcases that come with your books, or throw them away?
>>16608398You keep them.
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.
>>16608414Why the shelf though?Or the covers? Rip those off. Preface too, right?
>>16608398Of course you keep them, they're aesthetically pleasing and you already paid for them
>>16608414You should break the spines too so your books open faster.
I keep them because I like the rush of air that comes out when you pull the book out
>>16608565not him but I do break all my spines
>>16608398Discard. Shelf space is more valuable than tacky covers
>>16608425Do you think if you told someone you were planning on taking off your eyeliner/lipstick it would be appropriate for them to ask>why those though? Or the eyebrows? Rip those off. Face too, right?
>>16608398I rip them off in disgust then make new ones so all my slipcases match. Don't you?
>>16608578surely you would but a cheap paperback with small print and fewer pages instead of a fancy slipcase edition then
>>16608398why would I pay the money for a book that comes with a *slipcase* and not keep it
>>16608601>surely you would but a cheap paperback with small print and fewer pages instead of a fancy slipcase edition thenMost 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.
>>16608398The 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
>>16608408>>16608425I crushed so hard on this girl growing up
>>16608398Cases are for people who want to display books, not read them.
>>16609088you can do both
>>16608398I burn them.
>>16608937Me too. The original Goth. I probably would have been disappointed in the real thing though
>>16608398i throw away the books and fill them with pornos so to impress my hosts while not wasting space in my house
>>16609156> hostsi meant guests
>>16609161Better without the correction anon. Lol
>>16608398I 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?
Keep them, obviously. They reserve the space on the shelf that the book should be returned to.
>>16608570This man knows it.
>>16608398Nah, luckily there are no slipcases in my Goyndle Kikereader™
