   Dammed shame, man!

    I've had paper that bugs, termites and moisture have gotten into. (Bugs
and moisture are a fact of life here in Florida!) I put some baking soda in
a large salt shaker and sprinkle it between all the pages. It helps dry out
the paper and get rid of the smell. Close the books up for a while with the
baking soda in it then open them later and shake the stuff out. It might
help neutralize the acidity too.
