Our Winning How-To Guide: Learn to Bind a Book

GOOD reader Amy Wu illustrated her technique for making her own books.

Last month we asked you to teach us a lesson. We're all experts in one thing or another—whether astrophysics or parallel parking—and we wanted to share our wealth. Teaching a skill deepens our understanding, while simultaneously helping someone else. What can your friends teach you? Ask them!

Amy Wu has a unique skill to share with GOOD readers: book binding. She thoroughly illustrates her technique in this how-to guide that will get us all making our own tomes. Gather up your favorite pages (kid's drawings, letters, creative writing) and bind them in a book. Amy will receive a GOOD T-shirt and a year's subscription to the magazine for herself or a friend. Thanks to all our entrants, and happy learning!
