ARRRRRRRRRGH BOOK TAPE AAAAAAAAAAAARGGH

Before (with tape on spine):

After (with tape on spine):

Conclusion: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHH!

And the pain continues here on their book-repair business website. A terrifying example of fail-binding follows:

“REPAIR YOUR BOOK YOURSELF ONLY IF YOU DON’T CARE WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE

I know, we all want and need to save $$$$

Packing tape is ugly, but it can hold a book together. That way all the notes you wrote by the recipes will not be lost forever.

White school glue is not flexible. Using it will make the pages stiff. But if this does not matter to you, go ahead and use it. I have a friend who owns a used book store and he uses “Tacky Glue”. He swears by it.”
