Rename Tome Is Where The Heat Is?

Vote UP to rename, DOWN to keep the current name.

Reasons to keep the current name:
  • It's a clever pun on Home Is Where The Heart Is.

Reasons To change the name:
  • It sounds much narrower than the trope is, implying only guns in books, not "hollowed-out books as storage/hiding places in general.
  • The pun is two steps removed from "Home is where the heart is"
  • "Heat" is used to refer to the police as often as it is to refer to guns.
  • Not particularly intuitive; several people thought it was about book-burning or fire in some way.
  • There's a pre-existing term for this type of thing: a book-safe
