" Book overboard ! "

When your book starts getting exciting, it’s easy to lose your grip. Panic not, bicarbonate of soda will help the pages to dry, but you may have to postpone more reading for a while: sprinkle bicarbonate of soda between the pages, leave to dry then shake the book to remove any powder. Place a heavy weight on the book to get it back to its original shape.
Signs of mould appear ? Simply sprinkle with more powder and leave to dry in the sun. Then finally get back to your page-turner !
