How do i make a "Book of Fire"? Answered
also called a "burning book", i saw this trick in a chem class once. the prof took a book off his shelf, plopped it open to some pages in the middle, then turned the page, making sure it rubbed along the page underneath (presumably for friction), then the pages burst into flame. really, the air slightly above the pages was the burning component, because he then slammed the book shut and CAREFULLY reopened it to the same pages to show they were undamaged. i can't figure out quite how it's done.
