THESE BOOKS WERE WATER DAMAGED!!!!!!! I DONT CONDONE DESTROYING BOOKS!!!!!!!!!! I FOUND SOME WATER DAMAGED BOOKS THAT NO ONE WOULD WANT TO READ. THATS THE HARDEST PART OF THIS PROJECT. I CUT ALL THE BOOKS, THEN SUN BATHED THEM FOR A FOR DAYS TO DRY THEM AND TAKE ANY SMELL OUT. PEOPLE FROWN UPON DESTROYING BOOKS SO TRY TO FIND DAMAGED ONES IF YOU CAN. cutting the books is not fun! but if you have a- table saw, shopvac, and a dust mask it can be done. hook up your shop vac to the saw, put on you dust mask. IF YOU TRY TO CUT THESE IN A CLOSED AREA WITHOUT A SHOPVAC AND MASK YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BREATH!!! I KNOW CAUSE I DID IT.
