If you love to buy books, and you read them all the time and then you want to resell them to get back part of your money - be sure to always use a bookmark instead of folding down the pages. This keeps the value of the book higher than if you have bunches of folds through out the book. Happy reading!
Another thought on the subject. If it's a hardcover book carefully remove and set aside the dustcover while reading, keeping it fresh and uncreased.
