wrapping books with freezer paper?  It  is somewhat waterproof and is nice weight that it would be easy to wrap and doesn'  tear real easily.  I was curious if  anyone has tried it.  I thought I might give it a try.

hmmm. I think it would work pretty well. Just remember to use lots of shipping tape!

If you mean the freezer paper with one plastic side, it works great, but it's expensive.  I use it as cage liner for my snake and tried it once. (Unused, of course!)

Well I've had some lying around that I bought for a craft project (and never did).  So, I might try it -- just to use it up.   I put a few drops of water on it and they didn't soak through.

Freezer paper is paper on one side and shiney on the other side, for wrapping food, usually meats when they are going to be in the freezer....I assume it is water proof., but I have use the freezer paper and I also wrap in plastic as well.

Reynolds plastic coated freezer paper used to be all I ever used, under a single sheet, PBS label.  I never had any complaints, but yes, it's a little expensive compared to other types of paper.  Now I just use bread bags 1st & print the label sheet on heavy cardstock.  It's cheaper, and with good taping it's very sturdy.

I used to use freezer paper to wrap multi-book orders, hardcover or large trade pb's that didn't fit in the PBS wrapper, but I also still taped the heck out of it with good packaging tape. I liked it because you could cut it to size and not waste a lot of paper. Worked like a charm! I always have a huge roll of it here anyway because it's what I use to line my wooden soap molds when I'm making soap. It's pretty cheap when bought in the large roll that's available at CostCo or Sam's or those type of places.
