Yes, books can be pretty lethal. I recall taking a fun quiz some 20 years ago, How will you die? The answer I got was "Crushed to death under a bookshelf". Sounded quite true back then. It's harder to get crushed to death under a heap of ereaders, I guess.
We no longer need as bookcase. All we need is one shelf to store all of our Readers.

Ask anyone who went to Catholic School and had a Nun who used the Bible to the head.

I know that if a teacher ever tried to hit me, I'd hit back. But as I never had that happen, I was OK.

That's an excellent idea. Unfortunately I've sold almost all my older ereaders (6 in total, plus the one I gave to my niece).

And let's not forget rulers to the knuckles. I still have somewhat enlarged finger joints, and I blame the nuns.

Does that count as on-topic?
Only if you were reading it at the time. Otherwise it's just book vent & rant.

I'd actually just finished reading it and was carrying it back to the bookshelf.

I guess, technically, returning the book to the shelf qualifies as part of the reading activity, so you should be okay.
