And in celebration of books that we each enjoy (or you wouldn't be here) here is a humorous note about books and a video I hope you get a chuckle out of them both:


Introducing a new idea in compact information transportation: the Bio-Optic Organized Knowledge device, trade-marked, BOOK™. BOOK™ is a revolutionary breakthrough in technology: no wires, no electric circuits, no batteries, no charging, nothing to be connected or switched on (no need for a Wi-Fi hotspot or internet connection).

It's so easy to use, even a child can operate it. Compact and portable, it can be used anywhere -- even sitting in an armchair by a fire. Yet it is powerful enough to hold as much information as a CD-ROM disc.

Here's how it works: BOOK™ is constructed of sequentially numbered sheets of (recyclable) paper, each capable of holding thousands of bits of information. The pages are locked together with a custom-fit device called a binder, which keeps the sheets in their correct sequence. Opaque Paper Technology (OPT) allows manufacturers to use both sides of the sheet, doubling the information density and cutting costs. Experts are divided on the prospects for further increases in information density; for now, BOOK™'s registering information directly into your brain. A flick of the finger takes you to the next sheet.

BOOK™ may be used at any time merely by opening it. There is no lengthy "boot up." BOOK™ never crashes or requires rebooting, though, like other devices, it may be damaged if coffee is spilled on it, but it remains usable even if dropped on a hard surface. The "browse" feature allows you to move instantly to any sheet and move forward or backward as you wish. Many come with an "index" feature, which pinpoints the exact location of any selected information for instant retrieval.

An optional "BOOKMARK™" accessory allows you to open your BOOK™ to the exact place you left it in a previous session, even if the BOOK™ has been closed. BOOKMARKS™ fit universal design standards; thus, a single BOOKMARK™ can be used in many different BOOK™s, even if made by different manufacturers! Conversely, numerous BOOKMARK™s can be used in a single BOOK™ if the user wants to store multiple access points. The number is limited only by the number of pages in the BOOK™.

You can even make personal notes next to BOOK™ text entries with an optional programming tool, the Portable Erasable Nib Cryptic Intercommunication Language Stylus (PENCILS.)

Portable, durable, and affordable, BOOK™ is being hailed as a precursor of a new entertainment wave. BOOK™'s appeal seems so certain that thousands of content creators have committed to the platform and investors are reportedly flocking to invest. Watch for a flood of new titles soon.
