Sticky fun

Remember I was complaining that my book spine labels kept peeling off? I asked the librarians at LibraryThing for suggestions, and they told me about label protectors, which are adhesive rectangles of plastic that cover spine labels. A UK contributor suggested Gresswell as a supplier. I asked our library staff what they use, and they said that they used Gresswell's protectors, and gave me an empty box with the order code on.

Thanks to Gresswell (lovely people!) a week later I am the happy possessor of a roll of label protectors (1000) and a shiny Gresswell catalogue. If I hadn't already known I was a library geek, the amount of drool emitted on reading the catalogue (why yes, I read catalogues; don't you?) would have told me.

That, and worrying that ISBN-13 isn't as good at error detection as ISBN-10 :)
