First and foremost, laying it flat before it pulls away further. But yeah, I perform surgery on books with semi-regularity. Possibly careful application of some bookbinders glue, but it's really hard to say without looking at the patient.
FWIW I use Brodart "Bind-Art Adhesive" (product # 40-401-001), it's a transparent glue that is flexible when it dries, so that it doesn't simply crack the first time you open the book again. (And although I buy it in a 12 oz squeeze bottle, I buy smaller bottles with tiny little nozzles from Michael's craft store and use them to dispense the glue because it gives me far greater control in the application.)
And almost all books should be weighted or pressed firmly in their bindings after they are re-glued, with care to make sure the bindings are aligned properly.
What's the best way to do this?
Alternatively, are there places one could take a book to get it fixed? I really like my Thor omnibus and would be willing to spend a few bucks to fix it up (although I think Marvel should pay for it ).
