Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Hey there guys. I read. Not a crazy amount but I have a budding collection of books going. I mostly pick up hardcovers as they just feel more solid and have a genuine feeling that a paperback just doesn't have an a sense of permanence that an ebook just doesn't have yet. I was wondering what are some good habits in keeping my books in nice tide order on my shelf.
Are bookends actually functional in keeping books from leaning and slowly bearing down on their bindings or just simple decor? How best to keep my books dust free? It will probably be a good idea to keep them out of direct sunlight, yes?
Also, can I remove book jackets without worrying about any harm? I usually read in bed so they will probably be safe from the elements. Probably. I am not particularly fond of them and there is something about having that stiff cardboard cover feeling.
