I agree with Jill.  I was even thinking about the previous posting  while
walking on the treadmill at the gym!  Ha...  Go  figure!!!  I primarily use Bound
to Stay Bound, but will go to  Sagebrush Books if BTSB doesn't have a
particular title.  I've compared  prices and sometimes have found BTSB to even be
cheaper than others.  Out  of 16 years in the library I've never had A BTSB book
with poor pages, weak  spines and never had one to tall apart.  I can't say
that about  others...even Sagebrush.  I had to have the same book replaced three
or  four times through Sagebrush after only a few checkouts each time.  While
 that was rare and they have a lifetime replacement policy, it still took a
lot  of time to process the replacements.

We had a Barnes & Noble open here about two years ago and this  past fall we
did a book fair with them at their store.  We didn't make much  (about $80),
but afterwards our contact there began talking to me about buying  our library
books through them.  When I mentioned about "library bound"  quality books,
she said oh ours are library bound!  I think only media  specialists and our
special vendors understand the term...ha...

Last year I had a father come to us after sending a note home about a book
the son had lost.  He came in to pay for it...then when we told him it was
about $17+ (can't remember the amount) he told my parapro that he would  just
order it cheaper from  She explained to him the  difference.  I think
they ended up finding the book!
