|Planning notes|| A spot in a quiet area that still attracts visitors would be nice. I'm thinking next to the Quadrature tea house. I remember there was enough space to the right of the teahouse last time. If this cannot be done, near some other area with chillout comfort so people can sit down and browse our books would be great. If all that sucks, put us somewhere in a high visibility area with a constant stream of people. Maybe the upstairs lounge is also a nice spot for this.
Couches and comfortable chairs would be great! We will bring some book shelves and lamps to hopefully create a nice reading corner.

We will make sure to give them away on your terms (or just display them).
BOOK is a revolutionary breakthrough in technology; no wires, no electric circuits, no batteries, nothing to be connected or switched on. It’s so easy to use even a child can operate it. Compact and portable, it can be used anywhere, even sitting in an armchair by the fire, yet it is powerful enough to hold as much information as a CD-ROM disc.
Here is how it works: BOOK is constructed of sequentially numbered sheets of recyclable paper, each capable of holding thousands of bits of information. Opaque Paper Technology (OPT) allows manufacturers to use both sides of the sheet, doubling the information density and cutting costs. Each sheet is scanned optically, registering information directly into your brain. A flick of your finger takes you to the next sheet.
BOOK never crashes or requires rebooting. The Browse feature allows you to move instantly to any sheet, and move forward or backward as you wish. An optional “BOOKMARK” accessory allows you to open BOOK to the exact place you left it in a previous session, even if the BOOK is closed. BOOKMARKS fit universal design standards; thus, a single BOOKMARK can be used in BOOKS by various manufacturers.
You can also make personal notes next to BOOK text entries with an optional programming tool, called Portable Erasable Nib Cryptic Intercommunication Language Stylus (PENCILS)."Portable, durable and affordable, the BOOK is being hailed as the precursor of a huge entertainment wave. BOOK’S appeal seems so certain that thousands of content-creators have committed to the platform, and investors are reportedly flocking to the new phenomenon. Look for a flood of new titles soon.”
