Just want to say thanks to all who gave suggestions as to how to get the "stink" out of a stinky book.
It's been 70 degrees here the past 2 days, so while the sun has been shining, I left the stinker out on my front porch propped open.
When my 10 year-old got home from religion last night, he brought the book in and proclaimed "Mom, your book doesn't stink anymore! Now you can read it without holding your nose!"
So, a little sunshine and a cool breeze were all it took! I figured I would try the kitty litter in a ziploc bag if it was still a no-go after sunbathing for 2 days.
