I am not really a fan of e-books and audio books because of the following reasons:
- I love the scent of physical books.
- I enjoy flipping through a book’s pages.
- For e-books, I honestly get a migraine when I’m reading from my phone. Don’t get me wrong, I do e-copies of books sometimes, especially when a certain book that I want to read is not available in the Philippines. I just prefer physical copies.
- As for audio books, I just don’t get the hang of it yet. I tried, and it’s just not working for me. I usually end up falling asleep. It’s just not the same as “reading.”
As a reader who prefers to read physical books, I always bring a book with me wherever I go. You know, just in case I get some free time or I get bored. Through the years, I have come to the realization that my books get easily damaged inside my bag (e.g., it gets a few dents or folds) and it frustrates me sometimes because no matter how I put it inside my back, it always ends up getting damaged.
So last year, I stumbled upon this page on Facebook. Thus, I discovered Book Shields! I immediately sent the page a message and ordered from their shop. Here’s how it looks like:
I ordered two book sleeves; one for me and one for my cousin. It was one of my best purchases of 2019! They also have a free bookmark to match your sleeve. Awesome, right? My books have always been protected ever since I got one of these book sleeves.
They have different sizes for paperbacks or hardcovers. They also customize depending on the size you want. For more information, you may visit the following pages:
