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 inhalf. 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 directly without loading time. 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. You can use as many BOOKmark as you wish in any one BOOK.
Portable, durable and affordable, the BOOK is the entertainment wave of the future, and many new titles are expected soon…
Plus, you can borrow it for free from thousands of outlets, called libraries. Check the white pages to find one in your community.
