Default speaker set up for mono/stereo

I recently started getting into vinyl and am trying to maximize my set up. A question I have pertains to the mono vinyl releases of The Beatles. I have a three speaker setup with leftovers from an old home theater setup (two bookshelf speakers and one center channel). Of the following options, what would be the preferred listening method?

Turn the receiver to Mono and play through just A speakers (bookshelf)
Turn the receiver to Mono and play through just B speaker (center channel)
Turn the receiver to Mono and play through A +B (bookshelf + center)

Or all three options again but without using the mono option on the receiver

I've listened to all three and all three have different pros/cons, but I was curious how others might handle a similar situation.

I used to have a similar setup, L, R, C, and personally would only use the center channel when watching movies sometimes. Music, whether stereo or mono, I'd just run "stereo". No real benefit logistically of using the center, but as with many things, if you prefer the sound that way then obviously go ahead and use it.

And as long as the receiver is getting a left and right input (via RCA cables) from the turntable you shouldnt need to set it to mono. Unless its specifically a function for mono turntable signal....then thats another story.
