Duct Tape on My Book Spine

With the right twang, that blog title could be a country western song.  We saw this great review of We Were There Too!: Young People in U.S History on Amazon and could not help belting it out.

“My copy has been read so often that the spine had to be taped. For years, every time I needed history to write about, I went to this book. 7th grade project to research a lesser-known Latino historical figure? Jessica Govea. 8th grade historical figure painting project? Harriet Hanson. A paper about the civil war with an original topic? Five pages on Dick King and Billy Bates. Wonderfully engaging.” –Amazon Review

What book have you had to tape back together?  My copy of Richard Scary’s What Do People Do All Day? has a length of duct tape running down its poor cracked spine from my childhood obsession.
