I've just looked up: "bly" means the metal "lead" (as in a lead pencil) related to German "Blei". Hope this will make "blyant" easier to remember.
Can anyone explain to me, Non Ntive English speaker, what are binders?
A cover for holding magazines or loose sheets of paper together.
I think I understand it now :)
Special words for binder in Norwegian would include ringperm (usual) and brevordner (not very frequent).
Do binders feature so prominently in Norwegian life?
It's the fuel on which our bureaucracy runs.
Google Images can do a better job than any of us can do describing it.

'Covers' also cover the meaning of book covers (ha!). What might 'book covers' be in Norwegian?
It's still "permer". You could splurge for "bokpermer" if you'd like, but the short version will do.
Ok, I think your answer covered that one (ha!). Thx. Will try splurging. I hate being ambiguous.
Oh, I love it! ...or do I?
Book cover could also be called "omslag".
