Default Book Dust Jackets

How do deal with book dust jackets?

I try to leave them on the book, but the problem is the book slides around inside the jacket as I turn pages or change the way I hold the book. I tried taking them off while reading, but then I'd forget to put them back on, and it was one more annoyance to deal with. Or, I could just trash the dust jackets but that seems all wrong.

What do you do?

Paperbacks...'-}}



Take the jacket off and put it around/in/near whatever book you will be reading next to remind you to put the jacket back on?

I prefer paperbacks when I can get them. Easier to hold and read.

Only problem is, my hardback books don't come in paperback.

But, I sort of solved the dust jacket problem. I decided to throw them out. But because I'm procrastinating they are still on. But now I don't worry about making sure I don't scrunch them, I ignore them.

What sort of books are we talking about (no paperbound edition)? I suspect non-fiction, textbook-like books?
