Tip of the Day:

Hand sanitizer can be used for more than just hands!  We routinely clean used books that come into the store, and you can easily sanitize most of your book covers at home with a dollop of hand sanitizer.  Not too much, and only on glossy covers (do not use on matte paperbacks).  Polish your covers with hand sanitizer and a tissue.  For peace of mind and shiny books!
