Why did 8.5 inch by 11 inch paper become the standard size for typing paper? It seems an odd size that is larger than necessary since most letters don't need that much space. Besides, most books are not that size and it seems that each page contains plenty of space for the text. Then again, books contain a large number of pages while letters are usually only a few pages.

Didja google the question? Somebody "Out There" may have wondered the very same thing. If you find an answer, report back. Cuz now I wonder too, but I'm too lazy to go look!
