Look at a high school text book. Everything is first-class, or was when it was new. It’s tough, colorful, heavy and made to last. If you tried lugging a trade paperback to school and back every day it would be a mess of loose pages within a week or two. Library-rated bindings last longer but even they are no match for the durability of textbooks. Of course that level of quality costs a bundle so with school budgets in crisis you can be sure that school districts are squeezing one more year from nearly used up textbooks.
