If hardcover books are best for show, then paperback books are best on the go. A reader keeps a good book close and paperbacks help keep that companionship strong. They’re small and lightweight, making them perfect to travel with throughout the day. Paperbacks (aka softcover or softbacks) are also popular for many book styles including children’s, young adult fiction, romance, poetry, graphic novels, and religious books.
“BookBaby was so honest and loyal. It was the perfect place to go.”

Perfect Binding is the adhesive-based book binding style of choice for most softcover books. After the back folds have been cut off, the pages are bound by gluing, instead of stitching or stapling, like in a magazine. BookBaby requires a minimum of 40 pages for perfect bound book printing.
