No, we just squashed it together for a while, and when the glue cooled, it sealed itself back together. It had gotten really hot on the dashboard.

I guess that makes sense then. Still, bookbinding ain't what it used to be. :banghead:

Aye ~ cheap cheap cheap! And to think a 'mass market' paperback can cost upwards of $10, it's not so cheap for the masses.

Please dont remind me Parlez, this is where all my allowance to myself goes. It annoys me that I have to buy all the paperbacks that I do because the library never has the books I want to read. I would rather have hardbacks but can't afford them the way I read. I need to buy stock in amazon.com.
I do keep the ones I really like and reread them later but they still dont last long.

We have a great local chain of used book stores called Half Price Books. You can sell your used books there and buy books at half price or less. Each of the stores in our town has a unique personality so you can visit one or the other depending on what you are looking for. You may not always find exactly what you are looking for but you always find something!
