What happens when a book falls apart at the seams? That all depends, really. If the binding is guaranteed from a reputable vendor, then it gets replaced. Free! That's why I am particular about which company I use to purchase books for the media collection. I am a taxpayer, too, after all! Thanks to companies like Follett Library Resources (whose books are shown in the image here), I can get books replaced if bindings go bad. These books have been read MANY times by our students. These two books both have a unique bindery mark on back --- FollettBound Platinum. Thanks FLR for sending brand new replacement titles today for these popular titles with binding issues under the FollettBound Platinum label! #bravesread
