1. The holidays are upon us and after discussion among the moderators, it has been unanimously decided that we will be closing the Board on the following dates to give us the chance to enjoy the holidays with our families and so that the volunteer moderators will not have to cover for me while I am on vacation. The Board will be open to read and those who have those privileges can still send private messages and post to Profiles.

    Closing Monday, November 23 at 12:01 AM EST
    Reopening Sunday November 29 at 12:01 AM EST

    Brodart makes something called adjustable slip-covers for soft cover books (and hardback books without jackets). I can't tell for sure but I think you order them by the vertical size of the book. I'm also not sure how they can be adjustable... I can't tell if the pocket is factory sealed at the edges. One reviewer said they don't work for paperbacks with wide spines (like some of SK's tombs lol).

    I've covered paperback covers with clear contact shelving paper - to strengthen the cover and keep the cover from tearing at the score fold and prevent corners from fraying. Don't use contact paper on collectables or covers you might wish to scan. Its tricky... practice on a paperback you don't care about. There are a few tutorials online - google how to cover paperbacks with contact paper.

    Or... You could just copy the cover and put the copy (or cute wrapping paper) in a normal jacket cover.

    I put my more scarce paperbacks in archival plastic bags, just as kingricefan does. This protects them from excessive wear and dust.
