A problem I have had with this is pages that stuck together and tore
upon opening if the book had slept closed on the shelf for any length of
time; am I doing it wrong? Using the wrong stuff? The plastic-y surface
didn't feel particularly tacky to my fingers, but two sheets coated with
it face-to-face had a definite affinity for each other.
