The definition of what a book is is simple:
A book consists of a number of peice of paper sewn together, and bound
with a cover.
That, my friends is a book.  A scroll is not a book.  It is a scroll.  Nor
are commas floating down a river.  A number of things have been called
books, which aren't books.  It's like calling a fish a pen - they have no
similarities beyond common shape.  A chiseled stone is not a book, not
until you bind a number of them together in the form of pages.  Sorry,
that's the facts.  TTYL!
