Book Binding Definitions


When adding books to your cart or wish list you may see there are 2 options. The Book Buddies book pictures has a Paperback binding Option or Library Binding. School Libraries order the Library binding because they are super durable. Paperback is your normal high-quality UBAM paperback book.


You may see binding definitions on our website or in our catalog. You can refer to this image to see what those Binding abbreviations stand for.


Don't forget to ask your teacher for her wishlist! You will also want to share your wish list with friends and family! Remember every purchase supports your school!
