    Several years back you did a spectacular job on my NASB Study Bible, and next week I will be driving up with a friend for his Bible restoration, a Sunday School friend’s NIV Study Bible to be restored, and my small Bible I take with me that when getting out of my car the other morning I managed to lose grip on coffee cup, Bible, etc., and flipped them up and Bible fell in a puddle, half open. Spent several hours with hair dryer on slow, turning pages and drying them one by one! Needs cover, pages “expanded,” etc. We know of your good works!
