    As far as getting paper books wet, I guess the missing detail I neglected is that most of my fiction books are from the library!)

    Well, the centerpiece of THE DIAMOND AGE, is, well, I suppose you could call it a book.

    That is, it appears to be a series of pages bound with leather end-pieces.

    It actually is a nanotechnology computer using rod-logic, containing more computing power that all the computers currently on planet Earth combined.

    It starts by telling the little girl a fairy tale. It adapts to her interests. By the end, it has taught her how to be a black belt in karate, along with a four year university education.
