    Default Advice on displaying paperbacks

    Hi,

    Hopefully this is the correct spot for this. I have a handful of paperbacks that I consider "collectable". Most were purchased a number of years ago from booksellers, and they arrived in plastic bags. I just kept them stored that way, but now I'm finally going to display them with some of my other books.

    I've gotten some conflicting opinions on how to display them - some are saying to leave them bagged; others say take the bags off. I thought I'd ask the experts here to find the "correct" answer. They will be shelved side-by-side with other books, completely out of sunlight, in our house (temperature/humidity controlled) and will rarely be taken off the shelf (little/no cover rubbing).

    Thanks for the help!
    Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.

    I'm no expert, but I have quite a few paperbacks and not one is in a plastic bag, although some are inside glass-door bookcases.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    And the people bowed and prayed, to the cell phone god they made...

    I decided to unbag them. I don't like displaying them bagged, and if I don't display them, what's the point?

    I agree with you.
