    This is a book-book. It is made of paper. You can read it when the power goes out (when you have daylight or if you have a lamp or candle) and during periods of poor internet connectivity. You can share it with a friends and family.

    Treat it well and it will serve you a long time.

    (Stay tuned for my next post when I explain the concept of ‘clockwise’.)
