Paper books fight back

We told you before that paper is no longer a mature technology. And the marketplace has now proved the point.

There is a new Bible from Thomas Nelson Publishing with pages that are "100% water-resistant," and it is "a wonderful addition to any mission trip, a weekend at the beach, hiking, or even when you get baptized!" And if that's not enough for you it's available in two color schemes. Unfortunately, it is only available in the NCV translation which seems a bit odd.

I don't know if the technology is the same one that came out of Akron, OH, but it's impressive to see waterproof pages in a mainstream product. What's next, luminescent paper books that you can read in the dark?!

Waterproof paper is reported to now be going to public market. Hmmm, don't tell Nelson... they've apparently already had their water-resistant Bible for sale!
