  1. Store your books correctly. Uneven pressure can ruin a book.
    • Keep your books in a straight, vertical line on your bookshelf.
    • Don’t shelve the books too loosely or too tightly together. Too loose and they will lean and cause damage to the boards and the bindings; too tight and the covers will rub together and warp the spines of the books.
    • Shelve books of the same size together. Large discrepancies in size can cause the boards of larger books to warp.
    • Don’t stack books horizontally in a pile. Doing so causes stress on the hinges of the books.
    • Shelves made out of particle board are rough and can damage the bottom edges of books. If nothing else, line particle board shelves with shelf paper; bottom, sides and top, so that the books never come into contact with rough wood.
    • Use the right kind of bookshelf. Untreated wood can damage books because toxic vapors can permeate the books. Certain types of paint and finishes can bleed into the books. Ask local book store owners about their shelves and where they acquired them if you aren’t sure which type of bookcase to buy.
