When one is doing laundry, always double check the washer for books, especially signed first edition Indiespensible hardcover books, prior to hitting the Start button. There was green lint from the cover on every single article of clothing in this load.
Incidentally, the book was not being stored in the washer (I don’t have that many books). I put it in my laundry basket so save myself a trip down the hallway, and then started doing other things, and by the time I got around to starting laundry I had forgotten it was in there. I blame early onset dementia, or possibly just being overtired from a very busy work week.
We may have more PfP PSA’s in the future if we manage to so more absolutely ridiculous things to our own books, but hopefully this will be the last picture of a washed book we post.
