    They do fit perfectly, but I think a thin Mylar cover would still be ok. I really wish CD would include them on the books they sell, especially the very high priced ones like other stores do. I'm scared to death to try and do this to the DJ of IT lol.

    I guess I'm a minority here, but I leave my books the way they are. No mylar - nothing, just the dust jacket - which I do remove while reading the book.

    Well i thought that i spent all that money on the books so i want to keep them in the best condition possible and the way for me to do that is put a cover on the dustjacket. I also think it makes them look better

    It's funny...because when I was a kid and would read books, I could care less about dust jackets, then when I started collecting horror/dark fantasy novels, I became amlost compulsive about protecting them. But that's a good idea about taking them off when you read a book. But I actually like how it feels in the hands when a protector is on it.

    Yes!! It not only protects them but does make them look better as well. But there's a few different kinds. The ones I used to buy from Gaylord, make the art look kinda dull. The ones I've been sent from the Overlook Connection, actually seem to brighten up the art if that makes any sense.

    I also take the dustjackets off, but as a rule i don't really read my limited edition or signed books. I use brodart covers, they look clean & show off the artwork nicely

    Brodart, eh? Never heard of them lol. But I'm going to assume they must be better than the ones Gaylord sells.
    As for reading limiteds.....I will for most of them (the ones I don't think will ever be too valuable), but not my King ones. I'll just read some paperbacks or the ones I still receive from the SKL. I asked them recently for another copy of Nightmares and Dreamscapes, but they told me they don't have that book. That's funny because I know I received it years ago from them but it's at my mother's house, so I just bought the PB version to read again.
