I’m new to the forum, but I’ve been a fan of Rose’s books since A Passion for Chocolate. My copy of The Cake Bible and Rose’s Christmas Cookies are both coming apart—I’d say at the seams, but there doesn’t appear to be any stitching in the binding. Both books have had vigorous and frequent use and I wouldn’t want to be without either. Has anyone else had the same problem—pages simply coming away from the glued-in binding? I saw some mention in other posts that these books are often used as textbooks—is there some professional edition with a better binding?
I’ll replace both books if necessary, but I wonder if the same thing won’t happen again. Or should I just put a rubber band around the book, and keep shuffling loose pages?
