Books Do Furnish a Boom

Via Weekend Stubble: "An Oklahoma City candidate for state superintendent is examining the ability of textbooks at stopping bullets":

Crozier believes students could use the reading material while running away from an attacker. "The reason we are doing this experiment is because there was a kid in Fort Gibson who was shot in the back but the bullet did not penetrate his textbook."

Dizzies trivia: Which debut novel features a scene in which textbooks are hurled onto a lawn to detonate land mines?
