Books and Fire: A New App and a Fiery Bookshelf December 13, 2010 – Tags: Books and Design, Books and Technology, Bookshelves
The folks at Snarky Apps have created an app that allows you to burn a book on the privacy of your own iPhone.
from the description:
“Have you ever had the urge to burn a book? Well there’s never been a better time to exercise your freedom of expression with a nice and toasty bonfire and a good book! Choose from The Bible, The Koran, the Baha’i Writings and many more!
Fortunately, the app is more of an attention getter then a tool of biblioclasm. Yes, you get to choose what book you would like burn, mostly from the religious texts of the world,
but the burn stops there. You never do get to see the books actually burning. Instead you get some background crackling and this message pops up:
Don’t burn books
Instead, “Let your heart burn with loving kindness for all who may cross your path!”
Oh, and the app was designed by 14 year old!
If you prefer to have your books closer to a real fire than this contraption from CosiHome might be for you.
