>From my personal experience with daily use of coptic
bound books (sewn into the cover boards to attach the
text block) I would have to say I have found no
problem with the stitching wearing. I have read in a
few books where it was stated these exposed spine
structures weren't as stable but I don't agree. I have
seen wear on the paper at the corners/edges of boards,
etc. but no problem with the stitching. I carry one as
a daily journal in my purse, luggage, etc. They don't
exactly get kid glove treatment but I've been very
happy with it.
