I strongly urge you to remove the shrink wrap. If left on too long, the shrink wrap could actually damage the book.

I second that opinion. There have been a couple verified examples of people peeling off their DT shrinkwrap after it had yellowed and it messed up their DJ's.

You were right. TWL and DOTT were stuck to the shrink wrap pretty severely, but alright.
