A book face down doesn't have to be left so open the spine cracks!  Most
will balance quite nicely on their side with the pages just open enough
to mark the place.

Mind you, I hardly ever do this.  I just close the book and find where I
was when I open it again.  Some friends are quite surpised I can do
