Getting the smell out of old books?
This is my first post and I hope it's okay to put it here, let me know if it's not! Anyway, my grandparents are moving, and they let me have a whole bunch of their books that they've had stored in their rather damp basement for who knows how many years. I'd eventually like to read them all, and decide which ones to sell or keep, but the thing is that they all smell like they've been in a damp basement for forty years. As far as I'm concerned, this is not that enjoyable "old book smell." Is there any way to get rid of this smell? TIA for any help or suggestions :)
