On inspection so many were cockroach stained. We have wiped down several cartons of books (taken days).
I broke down and cried because the cockroach excrement was on the sides of all the pages. I was pretty broken in my spirit and I felt so awful and I felt that way because all of my life my books have never been left to fend for themselves in the elements.
I went to sleep and before I slept I asked for an answer ----> I woke up with the answer.
**** "SANDPAPER" ***
Books are made of trees and trees are wood and you sand wood to revive or smooth the finish of this and so I sandpapered the edges around the three sides of the book holding it closed tight and firm and Voila!
It was like a magic fix, it was just like when they were brand new! I just smiled widely and went WOW! I dreamed this idea and so I looked out and simply said thank you! I was so grateful for this inspiration. I relaxed and thought well we can fix the problem, all is not lost after all.
