close the Plexiglas lid, but only at random times, otherwise the top page twists, I think
most of the problems I have encountered can be fixed
I may have to make an air vent, LOL and improve the base some more, well its progress
Interesting. The fabric might be creating a static charge too, adding to the problem....requires some thought. A heavy book is less prone to behave like this, and I do remember my magazines and smaller paperbacks on the dual rigs did move a lot, and that was a hard base. A little suction is kind of nice, as it aids in page-turning, but your books are floating in the black abyss...
A merchant on ebay just replied to my inquire about their charcoal-colored convoluted foam:

They're sending a sample to me. Although it's not memory-composition, convoluted & black is something that may be more important at the moment: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 3681wt_967
