I would be quite happy with loose leaf if that is what you are going to produce for the majority of folks.

Just thought 2-3 holes on the side with the brass pins to hold the pages together would be an easy and very inexpensive method of keeping the pages together.

Heck, I have a bunch of brass pins that I would happy to mail to you for free.
I got them for like $2-3 at Office Depot here in town and only used a couple of them and it had something like 50…
The packages at Home Depot come in different lengths too.
1/2" up to 2-1/2", and the ones I have are 1" (I think) should be plenty long enough for 60 sheets.

If you decide to use the Spiral Binding method:
I have a spiral binding machine and have bound hundreds of books together using the machine.
All kinds of thickness too, from a few sheets to hundreds of pages.
From my own experiences with them; unless thicker stock paper is used for outside covers (best is Card Stock), then the outside pages are almost guaranteed to tear and rip at some point.
Second thought: it is FAR better to use a binder that is a little too large than one that is a little too small.

Bottom line, I am just happy to be on the list.  :lol:
Once I know the price, I will send payment, then please sign and send that critter bound or unbound.
That is your choice sir!
I am eager to see the content, not the packaging…


PM coming at ya.

As am I :)
Any binding will be good. But please, do not go through lulu process... I just really dislike the POD quality, especially for a limited run  :roll:

Okay, update needed by y'all.
Those that want spiral bound need to confirm, as I am working with a fellow member to put this together.

Those that simply wish loose-leaf(unbound) copies (so you can bind it yourself as you desire)need to firm up as well.

To simplify/expediate things, these will be the only 2 options.

Pretty firm, but did I miss pricing somewhere in this thread?

Pricing is going to be kept down to make it all worth it to you guys. But shipping is always a big bummer.

Does $7.50 + shipping sound reasonable (for loose leaf)?

I can't give you the spiral yet, all the details for materials haven't been worked out.

Absolutely, but don't price yourself short. I think most folks on here are painfully aware of the rising costs of shipping.

Yes, I will sign and # the cover sheets. That is paramount.

Several members have voiced opinions that this cost should be higher.
It is not my intention of making a haul from this project. But, to provide the members with a little bit of Thorky history. When one considers it may well take as much as $4-5 dollars to ship to some locations--on top of that--(even more, internationally!)--then the price is moving up towards the maximum that most will tolerate.

Spiral bound is another issue altogether, and Gnat and I are working on the details of that. When we have it all figured out, then things will be a bit more clearer.

As per Mbassco's request--I would also like to post some pictures if possible, to let you all see a little something.

Finally, I opt for an "unbound loose-leaf binding" please :)

I'm still in on the #2 slot - Unbound.
I'm happy up to $20 or so, at a 25-50 copy print run.
Any chance of some pictures of the original MS?


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

Also, to make things simpler all around, I am not going to be doing the spiral bound.

All copies will be unbound (loose leaf) with a cover sheet numbered and signed by me. I am going to the office supply store to check out card stock outer protection and if I get a good deal, I will add this to the item.

The price remains as stated, though individual shipping will vary, so I will need everyone's address (PM me) in order to calculate this figure before informing each of you your individual total.

How does that sound?

The run closed at 15.

I will gladly put you on the reserve list in case someone drops. Will that suffice?

Announcement
Having researched the shipping rates in the U.S. (including Alaska) I have figured the total cost for U.S. members at $12.50(including shipping!) This is for Priority, flat rate envelope, so it will not get there overnight!

All U.S. members still wishing a copy can now simply send the payment to my paypal account [rc pinnell(at)verizon(dot)net] and I will get underway.
International members, I'll need addresses.

And...photos up ahead!
