Its pagination is bookish. You view one page at a time, so although you can

One might say the same of many serial publications that are not books. What would be the equivalent of a binding? Are scrolls books or are their contents the books?

The content of a website can become a book. I did one of the first, Lineland, Mortality and Mercy on the Internet's Pynchon-l@xxxxxxxxx <http://www.cafecancun.com/bookarts/lineland.shtml>. But were the archives of pynchon-l a book even before I did that?

I think that any expression of the book artist's art -- including self-promotion and non-book-like works -- is relevant here.
