    Default Thursday Trivia: Tasty Books 📚

    Certain beetles have a taste for literature. They feed on paper and the glues used in bookbindings, especially old books.

    To eliminate the pests without damaging fragile and valuable texts, rare book libraries will blast-freeze the books for a couple of days at minus 20 degrees Fahrenheit.

    The Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Yale University has a specially designed walk-in freezer just for this purpose.

    And there really are book worms, when their eggs hatch.
    TRUTH is seldom appreciated, unless you happen to agree with it. When you don't agree, you just call it rude.
