    So a while ago on 4k, I think I mentioned that I read this Dan Simmons book and hated it so much that I literally screwed it shut. I believe I said I'd take a picture of the book if I found it... well, I did, so here's the pictures, as promised (click for larger).

    It;s a little hard to see, but it's right there in the middle of the book (in the little castle)

    I opened the back cover so that you could get a better look at the screw:

    As I think I mentioned on 4k, it wasn't so much that I was overly angry or anything... I think I was just curious to see if it would work, and I genuinely did not like this book, so if things went awry, it was no big loss. I turned out that it was surprisingly easy to drill the screw through the book... and I haven't done it since then.

    That might not go that well. Then again, if someone actually read it, that would be worse, so I guess it's a good idea!
