I concur.

I've had heated debates with people about this very thing. I removed a particularly horrible one off Stephen Fry's book 'The Stars' Tennis Balls'. When I took it to the local second hand bookshop I was told that he couldn't credit me anything for the book because there was no book jacket.


I haven't resorted to chucking the jackets away, but I do love peeking under them. I particularly dislike the irregular jackets that Chip Kidd seems to wrap around everything these days. They look nice, but are completely impractical, and get torn top shreds upon shelving/unshelving.
