Electric Literature has started off the year by shooting books, literally blasting titles by Jonathan Lethem, Rick Moody, and other writers.

In the video embedded above, Tom Shillue went to the Westside Pistol & Rifle Range in New York City to see how many books from 2010 could actually stop a bullet. The video was directed by Alex Markman.

Turns out 21st Century readers have little hope of protecting themselves with a book in a duel. Any suggestions for books that really could stop a bullet?
