my books are wet, help me save them

Please help me save my books. The movers just dropped off several rooms worth of my pretties, which have been sitting in a storage facility in Kansas for nearly two years. I was, needless to say, ecstatic, until I realized that fully a quarter of the boxes show signs of wetness around the bottom. Looks like they've been sitting in an inch or so of water for Logos knows how long. At least the bottom layer of each box is thoroughly soaked, and stinky. What is my best path at this point to dry out/preserve/resuscitate/de-mildew?

Kayaking with Camera

I have a Canon Digital Rebel camera and I want to take it kayaking with me (along with other wet activities if possible). Any suggestions on products that will keep this thing dry and still usable? Or should I just keep it in a bag and take it out when I need it? Anything is welcome!
