Default How to repair a book's binding

These are beginner instructions for home book repair. Unfortunately, it doesn't cover my problem, the solution to which is here . But this solution assumes your stapler can unfold, and I was too tired to get my stapler and look. So I found one on stapling without a stapler.

In my case, all I have to do is reattach the cover. So I would just staple the cover on using different staple locations on the spine. And that would work fine, until it comes loose again, which will be soon based on my past experience with this cover. So I should probably add some binding tape to the cover to hold the staples better. Or I could donate the book, buy new one, and hope for the best.

Hmmm, I wonder if there a glue-on hinges I can use instead. I'll keep wondering because now I'm too tired to search more.
