My daughter was using this new clear Contact paper to cover some of her books so I started thinking....

Would it be okay for me to use the contact paper (again, clear) on my paperback copies if I plan on trading them on PBS when I'm finished with them?  I kinda think worst case scenario the covers of the books would be more durable. I did read the PBS guielines and I didn't find any info. Did I miss something?  Would love any input!

Sounds pretty expensive, though.  Are you talking about as a book cover to preserve the book, or as a cover for mailing?

My question is how removeable would it be if it got really hot in a mailbox?  Would it leave a residue, or could the cover tear as I removed it?  Press 'n' Seal can leave a  mess, I know.

If someone had trouble removing it, & ended up damaging the book, would you be willing to refund the credit?
