Can you only do hard cover books, or is there a way to do soft cover?

Written english is a weird hybrid of phonetic and something like Chinese characters.

Chinese characters are built out of component parts, and serve a use very similar to English roots/suffixes/prefixes. A word spelled with “pre” or “ion” or “loc” has specific meaning, where you can partially piece together what it means from context, as well as create new words easily. However, this means that there are many parts of English that don’t correlate directly phonetically, leading to all the weird pronunciation rules.
