Can books die? It's a question that has been chipped away at for years but never truly answered. I will take the position of Con of course, because i believe that they are immortal like chairs. But that's my opinion. What's your argument?

Books cannot die.
My first reason is that they are made of a dead material (Paper, ink) and are not getting any energy from a 3rd party. This means that they do not live. Things that do not live cannot die. Have you ever heard of a books dying? Nope.
My second reason is it is a ridiculous concept. Books dying is a subject that is never brought up. That is because it never happens and isn't realistic.
Short arguments at first folks.

Sources: Basic knowledge.

Go to http://www.thefreedictionary.com... and find definition 5b. "To be destroyed"

This can be said about books too. If a book is destroyed, it dies. If all the copies of a book are destroyed, the book dies in print. If all the copies of a book are destroyed, and the people who have something to do with the book are killed, the book is completely dead.

You didn't give a definition, you gave a synonym. Give a definition.

Depending on your definition of "die" in this context I may accept this.
Could you kindly state a definition to agree upon? :)
