Make over: Book love
I have a "flipping through cookbooks" addiction, which leads to many a worn out book spine with clumps of pages releasing from the spine. My sister-in-law who works in a library recommended acid-free book glue. Now I squeeze or brush glue down any broken spines or onto the spine-edge of loose page sections, secure the book with rubber bands & place the book spine down to dry. In the interest of minimalism, I recently pared down my bulging cookbook collection, copying beloved recipes before donating my seldom used books to our local library. This King Arthur Flour Whole Grain Baking book definitely made the cut! Btw, check out the King Arthur Flour blog!
