While clearing some odds and ends from the cupboard ,I came across an old copy of my favourite magazine.I was surprised and kept wondering why I had preserved this particular one. After having finished my task and out of sheer curiosity, I clutched the ‘aged’ magazine and sat in a cosy corner to browse. As I was flipping through the brittle pages, one particular page caught my attention. A couple of lines in the paragraph of an article was highlighted. I bent over to read the content which interprets as follows ’to retain the strength of old books , sprinkle grey ash between pages’. ‘This will prevent the pages from becoming brown and brittle’ .Then I remembered and realized that this paragraph had caught my attention previously too, and that was the reason I had highlighted the text with a marker pen,probably to read again.If only I had seriously experimented the highlighted tips at that time , almost certainly, my ‘preserved’ magazine too, would have been all white and clean.
