A paperback (also known as softback or Soft Cover) is a type of book press-printed and covered with stock paper characterized by a thick paper or paper board cover, and often held together with glue rather than stitches or staples. In contrast, Hard Cover or hardback books are bound with cardboard and covered with cloth; although more expensive, hardbacks are more durable.
They are affordable and completely flexible in both build and functionality. Get more information here.
Although Soft Cover books are the most popular, they are not as durable as Hard Cover books. Because the reader can curl up in their bed or comfy chair, fold the cover and pages back as it (book) is being read adds to its popularity. Also, Soft Cover books are easier to transport. They fit inside tight spots such as a purse or a pocket, depending on the size of the book.
Last but not least, they are less expensive when mailing Soft Cover books due to cost of shipping, usually being determined by the weight of the package being shipped.

Saddle stitch binding is a popular method for creating pamphlets, poetry collections, chapbooks, children's books, and handouts. This type of binding involves stapling the pages together in the center, with a maximum of 36 pages per book. It is an affordable and creative way to produce a unique printed book. Saddle Stitch binding is a type of bookbinding that is commonly used for small, thin books or booklets. It is a simple and cost-effective binding method that creates a clean, professional-looking finished product.
What is saddle stitch binding?
Saddle stitch binding is a method of binding in which the pages of a book are folded in half and stitched together along the spine with a continuous thread. The pages are stitched in a "saddle" shape, hence the name.
How is saddle stitch binding done?
To saddle stitch bind a book, the pages are first folded in half along the spine to create a "signature." The signatures are then stacked and held together with a staple through the fold, creating the saddle shape. The staples are usually placed near the spine, but can also be placed off-center to create a more unique look.
What are the advantages of saddle stitch binding?
Saddle stitch binding is a simple and cost-effective method of binding that is well-suited for small, thin books or booklets. It is also a flexible binding method that allows for easy updates or additions to the book, as new pages can be added by simply stapling them to the existing signatures.
Are there any limitations to saddle stitch binding?
Saddle stitch binding is not suitable for books with a large number of pages or thick covers, as the staples may not be strong enough to hold the book together. It is also not a good choice for books that need to lie flat when open, as the spine will not be flexible enough to allow this.
