I hope the new material will still allow for handwritten dedications on the inside covers!They will certainly eliminate that awful odor of cheap old, oxidizing paperback books that makes me so nauseous! My main memory of my last attempt to read Don Quixote in Spanish is dominated by that smell. And naughty people won’t be able to rip pages out of these books at will, I imagine, thereby eliminating frustrations.On the other hand, I’ll bet the new materials will deal out some wicked paper cuts!Worth it, though!;-)
