In the middle of scanning an image for today’s post, I unintentionally pushed down a little too hard on the spine of the book.
I heard a snap. Not what a librarian / bibliophile wants to hear.
As you can see in the picture above, it was a clean break; at least it will be easier to scan images from the book. I wonder what the period of mourning is for a broken spine? We never covered that in Library School. Fortunately, I do have a second copy of the book.
