Children and adults alike have struggled throughout the ages with that frustrating clear or coloured contact paper, and it is one problem after the other: getting stuck, cutting it too short, not cutting enough, getting stuck again, finishing off with what looks like a piece of bubble-wrap...
here comes a new product to save the day (and your schoolbooks)! Contact-glue - just apply it to the surfaces, leave the book to dry and voila - a covered book without the traumatic ritual of Contact Paper. Your books will thank you for it!

||Carrot sticks and celery sticks I've heard of, but onion soup sticks?
||What you actually need is a book sock - a stretch cover that fits any size book, no glue needed, but which appears to be either too new or too mundane to have made it ono the Internet yet.
