4 Ways To Keep Your Books In Good Condition

In the world of eBooks, our love for paperbacks can never truly retire. They mostly create a nostalgic and emotional feeling within us, which is why preserving them is crucial too. Book hygiene is equally important as personal hygiene. After all, who likes their books stained or tattered? We have listed down some essential ways through which you can keep your books safe and sound. 

Ways To Keep Your Books In Good Condition

1. Learn Simple Tricks!

Over a period of time, your books become a part of who you are. Hence, it's important for you to preserve them in the best possible way.

  • Always keep a tissue box or a hand towel by your side when you are eating or drinking while reading. 
  • Use a bookmark instead of 'dog ear markings' or folded pages of your book. 
  • Never leave your books open when you are not reading them, as it can damage their spine. 
  • Store your books in a dry place as exposing them to water or humidity can ruin a book faster than you think. 

2. Bubble wrap or ziplock your paperbacks!

Bubble wraps or zip locks are the most cost-effective ways of storing your books and protecting them from dust or damage. They are not only reusable but work as great insulators against impacts. The next time you spill water or anything around your books, you won't have to be worried and additionally if you are carrying your books in a briefcase or a handbag, you probably won't have to worry about the pages being folded due to excess pressure. 

3. Repair Tattered pages

If you ripped a page which had been hanging loose for far too long, then its time that you start repairing it. 

  • Open the section where the ripped page belongs to. 
  • Place glue on the seams of the page and paste it. 
  • Now hard press the book so that the glue can effectively bind the page with the book. 
  • Place a rubber-band around your book and hold it overnight. 

4. Protect your books from sunlight!

If those UV rays can be harmful to us, they can be harmful to your loved books as well. Exposure to sunlight can diminish the color of your books. It can also result in setting off chemical changes to the ink, paper, leather, or cloth of the book. Fluorescent lighting tends to have the same effect. So ensure that you keep your books away from bright light.
