A .PDF of a printed book maybe.

Still on that physics book, it's going on about quantum mechanics now, interesting stuff.

That's still not printed, though.

Also, why would someone make a straight-to-PDF book?

Unless it's printed on something other than paper, this is impossible. Do you mean published?

The book is made entirely from plastic. The book entails a design theory where you reuse materials more efficiently and design stuff so they don't harm the environment. At 250 degrees you can spray the ink on the book right off. You can then reuse the plastic in the book for something else.

Also the book is waterproof

Just finish Star Wars Fate of the Jedi: Abyss. Awesome book. Don't bother reading if you haven't read NJO, Dark Nest, Legacy of the Force, and of course the previous Fate of the Jedi books.

Interesting. But I wonder if it's really saving any energy; by the time it's heated up to the point where the plastic can be melted, remolded...piping and pressurizing the water or solvent...very few individuals would find any use for it. It's not as though book paper can't be recycled. Most things we can buy now have gone through so many manufacturing and distribution processes, it's not easy to identify and eliminate any one large energy sink. [/ramble]

Waterproof is cool though.

I do not know what you just said, but it was probably benevolent.

But I did hear waterproof, and that's perfect... Most perfect...

Street Fighters: The Last 72 Hours of Bear Stearns, The Toughest Firm on Wall Street by Kate Kelly, quite good, and it's definitely keeping my interest.

On volume 17 of Monster, but more fair to say I finished 16 this morning and haven't started 17 yet.

At the moment, recycling tends to lower the quality of the paper. So if you recycle some computer paper, it might be some toilet paper next. The Cradle to Cradle book can be recycled entirely, keeping it at the some quality.

The book could be turned into a toy, computer plastics, tons of stuff which I can't think of naming right now.

Also Nike has a line of shoes embracing this design philosophy See it here

I'd hate to double post and necro a thread all at once.
I would be lynched for sure.

Finished The Strain by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan (Thought it was quite good, and can't wait for the next installment), The Scourge of God by William Dietrich (It's no Conn Iggulden or Bernard Cornwell, but it was a fast read nonetheless) and The Restaurant at the End of the Universe (Enjoyed it more than the first one).

Currently rereading American Gods for an English assignment and Fool's Gold by Gillian Tett for Financial Securities.
