Book Blogger Hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to discover and follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend bloggers, and gain followers. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday where there will be a weekly prompt following a bookish question. This weekly prompt was created by Billy @ Ramblings From A Coffee Addicted Writer.
Do you read hardcovers with the dust jacket on or off? Why or why not? (submitted by Maria @ A Night's Dream of Books)
Unless it's a library book where I have no choice but to read the book with the dust jacket, I typically just take off the dust jacket. I don't like the way it slides when I am reading and I like to try to keep it in a good condition, which is hard to do when I'm reading with it. The sliding is what bugs me the most. It's so hard to not get distracted, so this way if it's off I can read without my focus constantly being pulled out of the story. My biggest struggle with this whole thing is that I like bringing books with me when I leave my apartment and I always debate bringing it with the dust jacket so I can get a nice photo of the book! Book blogger/instagram struggles I suppose haha.
