What Is a book?

Everybody knows the answer to this one. However, here we define what a book is in the context of Novelitist.

In the Novelitist app, a book is similar to the real thing: a distinct, self-contained body of work that is meant to be published and read. In that respect, a book in Novelitist is just a book.

The difference is, Novelitist also adds a few things to this "book" notion, which is relevant during the writing phase: section management, organization, special sections (characters, places, etc.), in short, all the things that help you write, but don't end up in the published material.

All of that is encapsulated with the book itself, in a single unit that can be backed-up and restored as such.

A Novelitist book is the book itself, plus the structure to aid in writing it.
