#2467: BookWarm

Now that we have the internet, today’s invention is a way to use books for more than mere information.

Imagine a room with several bookcases against the outside walls. Given the cost of heating and the implication for environmental ecopocalypse, books would be printed on insulative paper which also has holes cut randomly into the margins of every page (shown in red).

These would hold pockets of stationary air and provide the room with greatly increased thermal insulation.
