How cool would it be if there were RUBBER BOOKS of our favorite books?

Rubber books - the kind you can bring into the swimming pool to read, and not worrying about if it's going to get wet! Rubber books, you can bring them to the beach, and if a big wave crashes over you where you're sitting on the sand, you can laugh at God and wave your fist, and declare, "I GOT MY RUBBER BOOK!! IS THAT THE BEST YOU GOT??"

No seriously, rubber books. Where are they, and are you seriously telling me nobody's thought of this yet? Really? Really?

Sounds like something they would have in a mental institution. Surprised you haven't seen them yet.

You better patent this idea ... NOW! Or else a fellow DVDTalker will run with it and become a billionaire rubber book tycoon.

Lemme guess -- you just watched the Cheers episode when Sam read Diane's first edition of Ernest Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises while taking a bath and dropped it in the water?

You can get an ebook reader and put it in a plastic bag!

I thought this was going to be about books printed on condoms.

It would be cool if we could go to a rock concert and see rubber bands.

Of all the years I've been here, I've never really thought about asking for one. Until now! Thanks!

Rubber sounds kinda silly, but plastic would work, kinda like the special UNO H2O decks:
