Another fun question this week for Exploring My Bookshelves hosted by Addlepates and Book Nerds. Each Friday, bloggers are invited to post a picture of their bookshelf, and write in response to a prompt about said-bookshelf.
Today’s prompt is…a hardback missing its dust jacket.
I have a lot of very old hardbacks with no dust jackets, but I’m not certain all of them had dust jackets to begin with. In the case of Silver Woven in My Hair, though, I know there used to be a dust jacket.
It’s not altogether accurate to describe the dust jacket as missing. It didn’t just got lost–I threw it out. I hated the cover, and I thought the book looked far more elegant without it!
