When we need to advertise books

A new aid to rapid learning has made its appearance. Indications are that if it catches on all the electronic gadgets will be so much junk. The new device is known as the Built-in Orderly Organized Knowledge machine. The makers generically call it a BOOK for short. Many advantages are claimed over the learning and teaching aids on which most people are brought up nowadays. BOOK has no wires and no electric circuits to break down; no connection is needed to an electrical power point. It is made entirely without mechanical parts to go wrong or need replacement. Anyone can use BOOK - even children - and it fits comfortably in the hands. It can be conveniently used sitting in an armchair by the fire, for example. Basically BOOK consists only of a large number of paper sheets. These may run into the hundreds if BOOK covers a lengthy program of information. Each sheet bears a number in sequence, so that the sheets cannot be used in the wrong order. To make it easier for the user to keep the sheets in the proper order they are held firmly in place by a special locking device called "binding". Each sheet of paper presents the user with an information sequence in the form of symbols, which he absorbs optically for automatic registration on the brain. When one sheet has been assimilated a flick of the finger turns it over and further information is found on the other side. By using both sides of each sheet in this way a great economy is effected, thus reducing both the size and cost of BOOK. No buttons need to be pressed, passwords remembered, or command sequences used to move from one sheet to another, to open or close BOOK, or to start it working. BOOK may be taken up at any time and used by merely opening it. It is instantly ready for use. Furthermore, the user may turn at will to any sheet, going backwards or forwards as he pleases. A sheet is provided near the beginnning as a location finder for any required information sequence. Once purchased, BOOK requires no further upkeep cost; no batteries or wires are needed, since the motive power, is supplied by the brain of the user. BOOKs may be stored on handy shelves and for ease of reference the program schedule is normally indicated on the back of the binding. A small accessory, available at trifling extra cost, is the BOOKmark. This enables the user to pick up his program where he left off on the previous learning session. BOOKmark is so robust and fully functional that we have not yet found a BOOK that cannot use BOOKmark as it is, right off the shelf! Pick your BOOK up today!
