To digest paper means: a] to read and absorb the contents of any

written work/paper b] literal meaning to eat and digest.

Yes.Adults can digest papers/books with full understanding of

its content.

No. Adults do not develop any new enzymes to digest paper. Paper

is made of cellulose and only herbivores (e.g cow) can digest
