Wie ist das Buch?

a note from lesson drei of my self-taught German lessons (thank you, library, for books like this)

"When the Germans say: Wie ist das Buch?-- 'How is the book?'--they are not asking about its health but for a descripion of its color, dimensions, etc."

so...Wie sind Sie?

This has inspired me to begin asking about the health of people's books. . . how have I neglected that for so long? People must think I don't care ;0)

Or their books must, at least.
