>can someone please define "chapbook" also?
I think I get asked this more than any other single question about books.
Some will give various historical precedents for a definition. But these
days I think it usually just means a small book, generally too small (in
page count) to have a spine, but also small in size, although not a
"miniature." But there are no hard & fast rules and limitations for what
one might call a chapbook.
