I've been acquiring quite a few hardcovers as of late - either through parent donations or from my library's awesome used book store.

So a couple years ago I realized I needed to start covering my dust jackets - like the library does. So every year I use some of my school's individual teacher budget to buy dust jacket covers.
So this is what I've been doing for the better part of today: genre labeling and dust jacket covering all these books:
