Spiral bound books

As I am reading books which are more like work-books (or books that require you to work - do things - with the content therein), I feel they need to be spiral bound instead of glue-bound paperbacks. Yes, they need to stay open without my effort to keep them open. So that while my eyes could be absorbing the content, I could be working on the recommended techniques.

There is an obvious trouble with spiral bound books. The spine cannot flaunt the name and so they can't stand on shelves with the spine facing the onlooker. But then books that prompt or are action-oriented anyway should be given greater importance than books simply meant to entertain or to improve your headiness. No?
