Re: Permanence and disintegration

Hello, Kevin:

I am intrigued with the concept of books that disintegrate as you read them.
What a unique experience, to be the only person ever to read a particular
book. And how poignant (assuming it was a good book).

I have to admit that, when I encounter this desire for permanence, my
kneejerk response is to devise highly volatile books. Books which
disintegrate as you read them. But that is only my reactionary self.
