Basically a movie, except you can't see or hear the characters. It's also harder to use than a movie, which makes it a bothersome inconvenience to 21st Century progress. Parents want their children to read books because they like to see their children miserable, as it reminds them of themselves at that age. A lot of great books have been made into way greater movies, but no movies have been made into better books.

A large paper document in the office that has a short lifespan. The reason? Nowadays, as more offices go the "paperless" route, documents are scanned electronically and the originals discarded and shredded. Often, a "book" has several portions, each portion stapled, quite a nuisance to remove in order not to jam the electronic scanner.
I hate getting a book with a hundred staples in it---it's the bane of my existence at my office when I scan it in!
