The return of the fez
Question for bibliophiles: Damaged dust jacket or none at all?

Not an issue if you only buy new books, but with used books or books that are on discount for visible damage a not-so-pretty-anymore dust jacket can occur. What's the best way to deal with this? Keep it or throw it away and put the "naked" book on the shelf? Yes, "serious" collectors get them re-printed, but that's way too obsessive and reading-with-gloves-on for my taste.

I have removed three badly damaged ones today and think it might be a fun idea to turn them into bookmarks. The middle parts are fine and big enough for bookmarks ...


Also, it has apparently been confirmed by the Moff, that there will be more fez in the next Doctor Who series. I wonder if that's a case of "on popular demand" or Matt Smith insisting on getting a new one ...

Aaaand, no Harry Potter spoilers, but let's just say, I'm not sure they picked the right book to suddenly decide to make two films out of one.
