    Default the television screen

    They turned the pages, which were yellow and crinkly, and it was awfully funny to read words that stood still instead of moving the way they were supposed to -- on a screen, you know. And then, when they turned back to the page before, it had the same words on it that it had when they read it the first time.

    `Gee,' said Tommy, `what a waste. When you're through with the book, you just throw it away, I guess. Our television screen must have had a million books on it and it's good for plenty more. I wouldn't throw it away.'

    Same with mine,' said Margie. She was eleven and hadn't seen as many telebooks as Tommy had. He was thirteen.

    I wouldn't throw it away = I wouldn't throw the television screen away

    Am I right?

    Default Re: the television screen

    Possibly, TV, not TV screen. Additional context would help. That is, are they looking at just a screen or is that screen inside a TV unit?

    All the best.
