That is a really good find. I kind of wondered why they called the device "Kindle". Well, now I know.

Seems like a good opportunity for future memory holes to be effective. I wonder if someday soon people will look at a printed book they same way they look at a cassette or VHS tape now. =/

Define "kindle"
2 entries found.

Main Entry: kin·dle
Pronunciation: \ˈkin-dəl\
Function: verb
Inflected Form(s): kin·dled; kin·dling \ˈkin(d)-liŋ, ˈkin-dəl-iŋ\
Etymology: Middle English, probably modification of Old Norse kynda; akin to Old High German cuntesal fire
Date: 13th century
transitive verb

========
[My note: Main entry #1 is self-explanatory, but also of interest, IMO, is entry # 3:
"to cause to glow, to illuminate"
That is their sense of humor, is it not?]
========

I'd agree. What a great sense of humor they have.

Funny how these little suckers can escape one's notice, but once you do notice them, you wonder how the heck you ever missed it!?? I need some real-life glasses of the kind that were found in "They Live"!!
