Turn an old book cover into a new notebook

I was going to post a how-to until I realized I had NO IDEA what I was doing. No kidding, no idea. I basically took an old hardcover book that was falling to bits, mourned the loss of a Tolkien-related piece and then decided to memorialize the not-that-well-written biography in the form of a diary. I have no idea how to bind books, so I did not feel safe telling other people how to. I managed to stab myself in the phalange with an x-acto knife rather deeply and break the needle on my sewing machine (though it did work), so unless you're a fan of ad hoc crafting then you may just want to look up bookbinding online. ANYWHO, Here's what I finally ended up with. The cover is really cool.
