Books are a portable device that allows people to share stories, knowledge, and whatever else they can fit in its pages. I choose to research the chemistry of books because of the simple fact that I always seem to have my nose in one. Books helped me get through some rough patches in my life. All I had to do was crack open a book and then I was in a whole new world, where any and all troubles didn’t exist.

Authors spend so much time writing their story they are going to want to share them. They use their imagination to make the words flow together to keep the reader transfixed in their writing. Some writers will actually try to sweat out creativity. But what is used to make the device that is used to deliver the story; the book? Books are words printed on many pieces of paper that are then bound together along one edge. Way back in history, when people had figured out the magical abilities of the combination of paper and ink, they used one really large piece of paper, or sometimes not even that, just whatever happened to be around. Then the greatest of minds came together to figure out a solution that would let them share their story in a more convenient way. So then came the scroll, but that was a hassle to have to roll back up all the time. More ideas presented themselves until around 1450 when Johannes Gutenberg innovated a portable device that is bound along one edge. It also happened to be less expensive to produce, which resulted in more people being able to have access to them since there were more of them, as compared to before when they were so expensive to produce so there weren’t many of them and only the rich had access.So now trees are grown and cut down to make paper, and ink is made. Nowadays, an author needs to only share their story with a printer to get the ink to stain the paper which they can then bind together and share with anyone they meet on the street.
About the Author
Keyera Lucas grew up as a book worm, reading above 12th grade level since the third grade. She often would exchange books with her family so everyone had more to read, and still kept some money in their wallets. Even when she moved she had more than twice as many boxes packed with books than that of anything else. She is known to be reading multiple books at the same time. She now spends the majority of her time at school, doing something for school, or at work. However, other than reading, traveling, camping, and all the stereotypical Montanan stuff, she is also decent with duct tape, as in making things out of duct tape. One day she aspires to be a Mechanical Engineer, who will hopefully not need that much duct tape.
