Take a Step Back
Today I learned: Ray Bradbury originally titled Fahrenheit 451 as ‘The Fireman’, but he and editors found the name boring. So they called a local fire station and asked what temperature book paper burned at.
The firemen put Bradbury on hold, burnt a book, and reported that the temperature it burned at was ‘Fahrenheit 451’.
