Found it - thanks!!

I got three separate pbs today  - all damp/wet. I know I saw a thread on ways to dry them out and keep the damage to a minimum, but can't seem to find it! I'd like to start ASAP!

It's been raining buckets here all day, and I had a lot of packages so my mailman drove to my house (he normally walks), and they were only exposed on his way from the truck in the street to the house - but 2 were in pbs wrappers and one a white envelope and they are all damp/wet.

I've had good results putting paper towels between each page and placing a heavy weight on the book.

Thanks, NewRuth...I just searched using a different set of search words and found Kim had recommended cardstock and bricks - so I'll try these in a minute.
