Hairdryer / sticker removal tip.

When ordering used books, particularly from some of the larger operations like Better World Books, sometimes they arrive with the bookseller's barcode inventory management sticker stuck on the spine. These stickers are sometimes not easy to remove neatly or completely, but in these cases using a hairdryer to warm up the glue before peeling off the sticker often works well.

Yes, that is a great tip and an iron does also work for example.
