I bought a soft-cover book a while back and today I found out all the pages are falling out, it's now only hanging on to the cover by a thread. I was wondering if I could fix this with a hot glue gun? The librarian told me to use white glue but, well, that didn't hold too well. And my mom thinks hot glue will ruin it? At this point i don't really care, as its wrecked enough already and i'm willing to take the chance, but first I wanna know if this works or if there are any better ways? Getting it fixed by a proffessional is out of the question heh.

Hot glue should work OK, but you might want to consider a sewing machine, thread does a good job of holding it together.

Wood glue should be a good choice, paper's just shredded, compressed, and bleached wood.

since book is made of wood, yes, it should work, too;) I think hot glue gun cools way too fast to repair a book with it once you applied the glue...and it gets way too solid compared to the book pages

You could always try breaking down the pages of the book into their most basic elements and then using nanorobotics to meticulously bind the atoms together so tightly that not even a nuclear explosion could disrupt their bond. But that might be going overboard, and I doubt you could read it afterwards.
