Mylar book covers

messydeskmessydesk Posts: 19,467 ✭✭✭✭✭

So does anyone here put Mylar book covers on book jackets of their books to protect them? I have a handful of books I'm always very careful with when I pull them from a shelf so that I don't catch the book jacket on something and tear it. The 3rd Edition Overton book I have came covered like this when I bought it, which is giving me the idea of doing this for a few more jacketed books.

    Good idea.... For me, it is too late for most of my reference materials.... Should have known, because when I was a kid, we had to cover our school books (brown paper bags cut to fit and taped). ;) Cheers, RickO
