To Repair or Not to Repair

I invite you to visit a website that seems to be unique. Most sites offering "book repairs" are aimed at those patrons who have an antique book or a precious family Bible that needs to be rebound. Well, what about the rest of us who just want a favorite book made usable again.

For example, your mom gave you her well used copy of The Joy of Cooking, but the cover is coming off. It is a pain every time you try to use it--bits of old glue keep crumbling away from the binding--pages come loose and get lost. What to do? You don't want it rebound in leather, you just want to use it.

Well, go visit Little Red Wagon Book Repair; send the business a picture of your broken book, and see if it is worth being mended.
