    Default wired

    Hi,

    Could you tell me how I can speak about this picture? I mean what is the verb I can use to speak about the picture?
    Can I say "I had / got my book wired"?

    hi,
    Please note I'm not a teacher nor a native speaker;
    The thing that holds the pages together is called comb binder or ring binder, wire binder so my WAG would be : to bind. Or made a verb out of the nouns.

    Cheers

    not a teacher

    As the original poster you don't have to say that you aren't a native speaker.
    Jaskin is asking us to note that he/she is not a native speaker. We can then take that into account when considering Jaskin's answer.
