Question about books on bookcases

13 years ago

We have a wall of bookcases in our living room. DH and I disagree about whether paper jackets should be left the books. He thinks it makes the bookcases more colorful. I think it's better to have the cloth covers showing. Is there a "right" way to display books? We have a few leatherbound and quite a few paperbacks mixed in also. Here's a photo from a few years ago. (Furniture is altogether different now; bookcases are similar but more "built-in" looking.) I still have the paper jackets and he wants me to put them back on. Thanks in advance for your knowledge on this.
