Do you know what I hate? Dust jackets. Yep those paper/plastic covers placed over books (mostly hard cover) that are there to protect and add color and pictures to our tomes. I usually take them off the minute the book is purchased. Usually 'cause the sound and the slipperiness of it drives me crazy when I am trying to read, but also 'cause the book underneath is usually so much more elegant looking. I also like how my series that are in hard back look all similar without the dust jacket and even the most ludicrous of books looks awesome on my book shelf when in it's naked glory.
