Picture of Hold CDs with a Book
I admit. I abuse the CDs in my car. Its not intentional. The CDs indirectly get scratched from the constant centrifugal force I exert when I'm making left and right turns. CD sheering is never pleasant to my ears. Nothing worse than hearing skipped tunes on your way to work.

Step 2: Combine The Materials

What better way to preserve your precious cds and easily locate your favorite book than to combine the two.

CDs wont get scratched
You'll always know where your book is.

Cons: For those who take care your books like little babies, and never fold the corners, this method is not for you.

Warning. If you have >10 cds, (unless you like carrying a dictionary,) don't try this at home.

What's a 'CD'? :D
Almost all new cars come with SD/USB/AUX/bluetooth, some of them with no CD at all.
It's a nice idea though, if you don't have one of those CD holder booklets thingies (they used to be insanely popular when CDs were at their greatest)

I have an idea, take a piece of paper and rub the back surface of the disc a few times,
See what will happen to the disc. The vibrations, movement and such WILL ruin the discs.

Leaving a cd out in the sun will damage it. Constantly grabbing it will damage the cd. Just putting it in the cd player will damage the cd. What im trying to say is cds, along with everything else will age and fail. the point of my instructable is to prolong the cds,not make it instructable. I agree paper can scratch cds, but it's better than watching it slide around in my car. Im just sharing an idea man. If you don't like it don't do it.

I consider torn and folded pages as battle scars.
I just don't like battle scars on my CDs.
