Water - Public Enemy Number One

Wow, it's pouring!

It just takes one drop of water to ruin a book. Moisture is paper's nemesis. On days like this I almost want to just close, lest the rain gets on any books as people come in and out.


Rain date for the Shank Yard Sale is tomorrow! Same Bat Time, same Bat Channel!

I just saw this thing on TV where it said if your book gets wet, you can smooth it out the best you can and put it in the freezer for two days. When you take it out, it won't be COMPLETELY perfect, but it'll look really good again. They demonstrated, and had a chemist from Beijing Applied Chemistry University (or something like that) explain why it works.

Interesting! I'll have to try it out.
