A colored sheet to filter out the yellow, too... And old Gold Medals
can fall apart. I have used a 45 degree opening and a strong clip
along the spine. It works, but it's not very comfortable. If you open
those old paperbacks all the way, they will fall apart.
I have not noticed any problem with Hard Case books. They're as
legible as most paperbacks, and they seem structurally sturdier.
