A few years ago, whilst travelling through USA, I bought my first bible. I was travelling with some like minded friends who showed me how to crack my bible. I am not talking about cracking codes or anything like that but about cracking the spine of a new book to avoid damaging it.
Yesterday, my new book from here arrived (and it is still on special!). Because it has a large spine, I thought I should apply my book cracking skills to it!
And again with the last quarter. Depending on the book, you may need to keep dividing and opening and pressing until you have 'cracked' all of your book's spine.
I have to say that in the case of this book, it's spine is very good and probably didn't need a good cracking afterall!
Now I can't wait to dive into this gem.
