You’ve been thinking about book covers lately.
You want to be sure that when you read a book, that you don’t have to read it on a cover.
You’ve heard it’s bad for your eyesight, bad for the lungs, bad to your brain.
And yet, the cover is what’s holding you back from reading books.
So how do you stop reading a book without reading a cover?
How do you read on a jacket?
And what does a book’s cover mean?
Read on for our top 10 tips for keeping your books clean and stylish.
Don’t use your eyes to check out the cover.
This isn’t really about you.
It’s about what you see.
When you look at a book and read it, your brain scans it and decides if it’s okay to show you a book.
And your eyes can tell you a lot about what’s on the page.
If you can’t tell if a book is really a book or a cover, you’ll find it hard to read the book.
So if you’re going to read a cover that’s not a book for the first time, ask yourself why.
It could be because it’s hard to distinguish between book and cover, or because the cover isn’t showing enough detail, or it’s a different style than the book you’re reading.
Take a look at the cover first.
If it’s not clearly marked, ask a friend to help you figure it out.
(It might take a couple of tries to figure out the difference.)
If you want to read on your computer, open a file, or use your mouse, look at how the book looks.
If the book is clear, but it’s too small, take a closer look at it.
If there’s some extra space around the edges, that could indicate that there’s something missing.
Don’s advice for cleaning books.
When it comes to books, if you can get your eyes out of your book, you can clean it.
Try opening a folder or drawer full of books.
Just use your hands to make sure you’re not missing anything.
Don’ t just throw the cover away.
Some book covers come with a handy “cover cleaning kit.”
Just take the covers and use them to clean the cover, then discard them.
You don’t need to clean them completely.
If they’re still dirty, toss them in the trash or put them in a recycling bin.
And you might want to consider donating the covers to libraries.
If a book comes with a nice, clean book cover, chances are it’s one you’ll want to keep.
If books come with “no covers” or “coverless” covers, put them on the cover and remove the top flap.
If that means you can read on the back, don’t discard it.
It’ll keep its value.
Don ‘ t let your books get dirty.
If your books aren’t clean, it’s time to put them away.
But you can always clean them yourself.
Put them in your bathroom sink and clean the sink with a mild soap and water, then put the books back in.
You’ll be surprised how many books will look new.
Read the book cover for yourself.
If no one’s been reading it, ask your friend to read you the cover to find out if it matches the book title or what you’re looking at.
If he or she says it’s an “all-cover book,” then it’s probably a good idea to give it a chance.
Use the book case as a mirror.
If an article of clothing, like a dress or a coat, has a “cover” or a “sleeve,” it’s likely to be too big to fit on a page.
When your bookcase is empty, turn it upside down and place it on the bookcase to see if it fits.
You might want something more flexible than a regular bookcase, but if you don’ t have a book case, you might as well be reading from a jacket.
Put a book back on the shelf if the cover doesn’t match.
When the cover on a paperback book doesn’t look the same as the cover in a magazine, it might be too tight.
But if the book on a magazine cover matches the cover of a book on the bookshelf, the book should be placed back in its place.

Get a book from the library and keep it.
The library has a number of books you can check out.
The most important ones are the ones that come with an official title.
When those titles are in the collection, you have an official book.
You should have a copy of the book for when you go to a library.
When books aren’t official titles, like “newspaper,” “book of the month,” or “book cover
