:lol:

Givez me an idea for a product to make books popular with the kidz.

It woud be a thing that holdz your book wen you want to read it. It woud shake up and down, flip pajez without warning, put little cardz up over the paje occasionally, flash lites in your eyez, play bad muzik... everything that makes websites so popular.

Well, it's not _exactly_ how books work. It's analogous to how books work. Kind of like the difference between "literally" and "figuratively".
