If you have a favorite softcover sewing book (or cookbook), you can take it to your local copy shop (Kinkos, etc) and have it coil bound.

I did this with several sewing books as well as my sewing machine instruction books & upgrades. I had pocket pages added & pages to hold the upgrade CDs. A couple of my books had pages that were falling out so this solved several problems.
