Definition of "book"

Definition of a book...

My definition of a book follows that of a normal dictionary, although thinking outside the box (or in this case, thinking outside the book) is probably a more productive method for fostering creativity in this class. I personally would choose to use the word, “story,” to label the things that we have labeled using the word, “book,” simply because the description given to us in class was most closely related to my definition of a story. To say, “Anything can be a book, and everything is a book,” implies that anything can and everything does tell a story. It is just my terminology that is different.

In the end, words are just symbols, which can be redefined at any moment by those using them.
