I always remove them when I'm reading and I'm finding that even when I put them back on my bookshelf I'm liking how they look without them, but I don't think just tossing them in the garbage is the right answer. But maybe it is. So what do you fellas do with them?

I put them on Bibles, take them to Chapters and put them on the shelves.

I've been on a bit of a tear through stuff with SciFi/fantasy elements lately. The Rook was a fun if somewhat vapid read. Ditto for everything Gaiman. Ready player one and Armada are lots of fun if you grew up playing games in the 80s/90s. I hope the movies don't suck.

I'm just finishing Three Body Problem, which is interesting and has a lot more hard sci-fi in it. It's a decent read, and the first thing I've read translated from Chinese I liked. I think it had some pacing issues and the reveal is kinda all in one lump at the end, but it was interesting. Dog might like it, as much as he likes any fiction.
