    Yes,

    if you want to read it, or look at it, or touch it, or smell it, or see if it is signed, or see if there is even a limitation page, or see if it's actually a first edition, or if it's even the book you thought, or see if there is any mold, mildew, moisture, or glue seepage which caused damage, etc.,
    Spoiler:
    unless as a collector you decide that you want to leave it on for any number of reasons,
    Spoiler:
    such as the book is in a slipcase and the shrinkwrap isn't likely to cause any immediate damage, or it's a book that you are planning to flip and not really a part of your collection, (These two are the only reasons that I ever leave it on.)
    Spoiler:
    or you just prefer to leave it on because you think it's worth more that way, or it makes the book feel new, or because you've had that book that way for 30 years and you aren't going to change it now, or you just think it looks cool,
    Spoiler:
    or that's simply the way you like it, etc..
    Yep... I think that pretty much wraps it up.
    I will wholeheartedly agree with that statement..

    Man, that was like one of those Russian Doll things.

    I personally wouldn't have a problem taking advise from Kris or purchasing something from him. Dude's just above my pay grade

    I would like to request that if you have a copy of The Best American Short Stories 2007, that you look at the inside front cover and first page.....and inside back cover and last page.

    I have several copies of this book, and notice where the cover and page come into contact with one another, there is browning. And, if something was in between the cover and page, that prevented the browning.

    Check it out.

    Just checked my copies and zero browning.

    Edit: I take that back, yes I see a light brown tone on the pages. I took into a different room with bright lighting.
