What a Book is is portable, tangible, burnable Readable-Ness able to command action and/or devotion from humans and machines.

Fine Print: For burnable, read also breakable/transformable. For devotion, read also imprint/addiction or exactitude/rigor. For machine, read also (unwise) intelligence.

—Stephanie Strickland
