Most books can be replaced for less than the cost of repairing them. Sadly, many beautiful and interesting books are not worth as much as one might wish. Generally, books are "worth" repairing if they have sentimental value for the owner, have a high monetary value or are not replaceable. Outside of these three categories, it is better to look for another copy. This is a harsh truth, but there you are.
