Elmers or hot glue. Thats if its not collectable. Then go to a pro.

Go get a can of that Plasti-Dip. It should fix that book in a flash (after it dries.) Just smooth on a good layer on the area that needs to be bound. Or else, there's always duct tape! (Just kidding!).......T

Don't forget the clamps!!! The clamp rig should be a stout & inflexible piece of material, like angle steel, a bench-edge and two bar clamps. Thoroughly jog and carefully stack the pages (but not the cover) on the bench-edge (spine hanging out 1/4" or so) and clamp the angle down onto the stack tightly enough so the pages don't slip across each other, and make sure no pages are hidden inside where glue won't get to.
Brush glue (elmer's or wood glue) cleanly across the spine and let dry.
Unclamp and trim excess glue drips. Gently fan pages and check for loose ones.

You only have one shot at it with this method, so maybe practice a couple of times with an equally disheveled book of little value.

Good luck.

Call around to some of the quick print shops and ask them if they have a Fast Back Binder system, this is a system that takes a plastic material and melts it and binds your book. Tell them how many pages as some systems are only good for up to 90 sheets of paper. The binder has a colored tape for that profesional look when complete.

      BW is not a designated Trout lake. The limit is the same as state which I think is 5 bows. Don't think there is a size limit either since they don't breed.

      Rotes, Hi, I just joined this forum and these corner caps are just what I have been looking for. Is it possible at this late date to get a set of these made for my Lund? The only difference I can see is the color of the material. Would you be willing to make a set for me? Thanks, [email protected]

      Any move requires time and effort, but if you turn to a moving company for help, then some of the problems will disappear immediately. Firstly, the guys from the moving services always take care of the client's property, pack and carefully transfer your things to the car. Secondly, when moving with movers, you do not have to worry about the road, they choose the fastest and safest way, as they have extensive experience in transportation.

      Anybody know how much the lake temps have dropped?   Are people have the most success with minnows vs crawlers when fishing with live bait lately, or are crawlers still working?

      Snuck out last night, water Temps down to 54-56, last Thurs mid 60s. Fish were finicky. Leaves are changing quickly here, lots falling. Two weeks should be a lot better in the woods

      I agree with the previous comment, you could save a lot of money by making your website first .. its design .. and then if you want to move .. but if you want, you can immediately ..-) look here: https://digitalsuits.co/hire-developers/hire-shopify-developers/

      I think that even at the initial stage, you need to consult with specialists who have been working in this field for a long time .. and then you will really get the result .. otherwise you can spend a lot of time and in the end you will have to redo everything .. for example, look here: https://www.softformance.com/services/software-consulting-company/

      The best solution in this situation is to create the software yourself, and then turn to testers who will check everything. Although, if you manage to develop software, then you will have the strength to test it yourself
