Sometimes the glue doesn't get a good stick and if you re-align the cover where it's supposed to be, set your iron a little below the cotton level, and put a piece of cotton material between the iron and the book to protect the book, then set the iron flat on the spine for about 10 - 15 seconds (careful and don't burn yourself) it will re-adhere. I've had to do that a couple of times with different books.

thanks for the advice I will try that

Just remember, don't use the steam setting. And let the book cool fully before messing with it or you'll just pull the cover right off, again.

I knew there was a good reason for an iron....like the stove thingy it just sits there. :(

LOL... I feel the same way about irons. I use them about twice a year otherwise it is my doorstop.

And I'm sorry what is this thing you call an O-V-E-N ? Is that an acronym for something... like "orchestrate virtually every natural disaster" (in the kitchen)... Here's a fun fact... did you know that every other time I've cooked I've set off my fire alarm... no joke!
