I have hands, but just imagine if you didn't! how would you perform everday tasks? such as typing, or even reading a book (with no hands to turn the pages you'd never get past the cover, or even get the book from the shelf)...sure you could hire a helper or marry ugly but who has the time and money for that? if only there was a tv station that would show books all day...the pages could be turned for you...sure you'd have to have someone set the channel for you but once you've tuned in there's no reason to tune out...

reading rainbow came close...but it was tough to trust those kids, and lavar burton wasn't always easy on the eyes...I know if i lost my hands i would love to have a channel like this

       Everyone knows the movie is never as good as the book...but don't take my word for it

       I agree, those kids always seemed to like the books they were reading. I sense publishing industry propaganda.

       1) not everyone reads at the same rate
2) The TV won't display at a high enough resolution.

       yamahito: They always could scroll at the same speed as the TV Guide channel.. even people that can't read can keep up at that pace

       Watching a screen for a long time hurts the eyes. Far better to give your armless friends an automatic page-turner.
