3 Ways You Can Use Booklets and Other Small Books

Not every book needs to be massive. Here are some ways to use booklets and small books of all kinds.

The term door-stopper is used to describe long books that can be used to hold a door open. These types of books are often found in the fantasy and science fiction genres. However, they’re just as often found among works of classic world literature. Not every book needs to be massive. Here are some ways to use booklets and small books of all kinds.

Portable Books

As the busy holiday travel season approaches, portable books see an uptick in demand. When you’re going on vacation abroad and need a travel guide or a language phrasebook, these books will often be smaller, so they’re easier to carry. However, small books aren’t only useful for tourists. Recreational activities like hiking, biking, and canoeing are just as popular in the fall as they are in the summer. If you need a guidebook to help you explore the wilderness without getting lost, then it makes sense for these books to be portable as well.

Easy to Reach

Reference books of all kinds should be kept in easy reach, and that’s one of the reasons they can be published as small volumes. Books containing first aid instructions need to be smaller and lighter instead of heavy and awkward. The weight of the book can make all the difference when attempting to treat someone who is injured, likely as a result of an accident or a fall. Books of rules, regulations, and industry jargon should be kept small and easy to find as well, especially in busy professional settings such as government, medicine, and science – where keeping accurate information close at hand can make everyone’s lives easier and reduce confusion about proper procedures.   

For Small Packages

Consumer products aren’t always enclosed in large packages. Small packages call for small books, as well. In these cases, booklets are much more practical than full-size or even smaller books. Some examples of booklets for small packages include care guides, assembly instructions, and user manuals.
