heh, the close-up pic of the text is showing one with Ender’s Game – “the enemy’s gate is down.”
This cries out for Cory to write a story called “Fahrenheit xxx (not 451 probably) which is the temperature at which “Kindle”ing burns and destroys all the books stored on it. So what is the temperature that a Kindle burns?
You could simply cut out the screen area and place this over a paper copy of the book. Fool the elderly.
