   Last year there was a funny email circulating -- it took many web/email

turned out to be a book.  Does anyone still have it on file?



ANNOUNCING THE NEW BUILT-IN ORDERLY ORGANIZED KNOWLEDGE DEVICE, OTHERWISE
KNOWN AS THE BOOK!

It's a revolutionary breakthrough in technology:  no wires, no electric
circuits, no batteries, nothing to be connected or switched on.  It's so
easy
to use even a child can operate it.  Just lift its cover.  Compact and
portable, it can be used anywhere--even sitting in an armchair by the
fire--yet it is powerful enough to hold as much information as a CD-ROM.

Here's how it works:  each BOOK is constructed of sequentially numbered
sheets of paper (recyclable), each capable of holding thousands of bits of
information.  These pages are locked together with a custom-fit device
called
a binder which keeps the sheets in their correct sequence.  By using both
sides of each sheet, manufacturers are able to cut costs in half.

Each sheet is scanned optically, registering information directly into your
brain.  A flick of the finger takes you to the next sheet.  The book may be
taken up at any time and used by merely opening it.  The "browse" feature
allows you to move instantly to any sheet, and move forward and backward as
you wish.  Most 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 the 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 BOOKs by various manufacturers.

Portable, durable and affordable, the BOOK is the entertainment wave of the
future, an many new titles are expected soon, due to the surge in popularity
of its programming tool, the Portable Erasable-Nib Cryptic
Intercommunication
Language Stylus...
