Now that they have those "e-books" where you are able to download entire books into a single memory/output device, I was wondering if people could write two versions of a book. The first would have the names that the writer would have chosen for the characters, but you would be able to select a second option, where you fill out your name, place you live, friends' names, pet's name, etc. After filling out your information, it would insert it in all the right places to make it seem like you actually live and interesting life (with your friends and family taking co-starring roles of course.)

       [PS]: There's an old story about a person listening to The Scottish Play on the radio, and when that part comes on, the dog (called Spot) gets up from his basket and leaves the room.

       "Tomorrow, and tomorrow and tomorrow." Spot heads off to the town of Morrow, Ohio. Either that, or doggy thinks he's a witch and goes to meet the others atop Heath Ledger. No?
