I was wondering if this could be done more safely by:
- creating and erasing soft links to the book files (hidden)
- renaming files (modifying extension etc)
- changing attributes (no read) or chowning them
I don't know if it's trouble or not. Unfortunately your suggestions are not applicable. The books are stored on FAT filesystem so you can't use links there. Neither can you change the permission because they're not supported by FAT. And as for modifying the extension ... I don't see how it's different from moving it into different directory.
