I take a book everywhere I go and I like to keep my book protected so it stays in “like new” condition. No bent corners, no accidentally torn covers. An added bonus is that it also conceals what I am reading from prying eyes. There is an attached fabric bookmark to easily mark your place. Two carry straps make it easy to carry your book with you. Book covers are fully lined so there are no unsightly seams or loose threads. Your choice of fabric.
