Do you read hardcovers with the dust jacket on or off? Why or why not?
I keep them on. I can't say why exactly; it's simply never occurred to me to take them off.
Tesara woke with a gasp, blinking in the dim candlelight, as her mother shook her awake.
From page 56:
No matter how bad he was, he somehow always managed to make her feel as if she were worse than he was, when in reality they were the same, the two ne'er-do-wells who were forever making mistakes and always being taken to task.
The Sisters Mederos
Two sisters fight with manners, magic, and mayhem to reclaim their family’s name, in this captivating historical fantasy adventure.
House Mederos was once the wealthiest merchant family in Port Saint Frey. Now the family is disgraced, impoverished, and humbled by the powerful Merchants Guild. Daughters Yvienne and Tesara Mederos are determined to uncover who was behind their family's downfall and get revenge. But Tesara has a secret – could it have been her wild magic that caused the storm that destroyed the family's merchant fleet? The sisters’ schemes quickly get out of hand – gambling is one thing, but robbing people is another…
Together the sisters must trust each another to keep their secrets and save their family.
It sounds like a great read. I love that beginning! Very alluring! :-) I added you to the Linky. Happy weekend!ReplyDelete
Thanks on both counts, Freda.Delete

It's fairly action-packed so far. Thanks for the visit.Delete
I really like the beginning. If there is use of a candle, I'm going to like the story.ReplyDelete
I am enjoying it so far. Happy Reading.Delete
I admit I take the covers off. I'm so rough on them and so they stay in better shape if I don't keep them on. My husband, on the other hand, leaves them on. He often teases me when my daughter immediately takes the dust cover off of her books when she first brings them home--having picked up my habit. She even uses my reasoning! :-)ReplyDelete
The Sisters Mederos sounds good. I like the love that cover!
Have a great weekend!
Oh yes, I can see keeping them undamaged would be a good reason for removal. I am always super careful with books anyway. I try to crease spines as little as possible etc. Happy Hopping.Delete
I love the sound of this one and the cover is fantastic. Happy weekend!ReplyDelete
Thanks Alicia. Same to you.Delete

I never thought to take dust jackets off before either. The Sisters Mederos sounds interesting, I like reading about main characters who are siblings.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the visit. Happy Reading.Delete

I keep the dust jacket on as well.ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by, Chrissy.Delete
I did use to leave the DJs on years ago. When I saw that they were getting a lot of edge wear, and thus looked AWFUL, I decided to start taking them off before I began to read the books. I just CAN'T stand to see edge wear on a DJ! Lol.ReplyDelete
Your reading choice for this week is just AMAZING!! I'm adding it to my Goodreads shelves just as soon as I finish posting this comment!! Thanks for featuring it!! :) :)
Thanks as well for commenting on my own BBH post! <3 <3 :) :) So sorry for the late comment back....:(
