Since it has no forum,  and my Google search yielded no descriptions of a successful hack, can I assume "The Book" is unmodable?

Could I install a marketplace like AppBrain and if so would apps from the market work without a touchscreen?  Can the device be rooted and/or custom ROMS installed and what capabilities would that enable beyond the stock eReader function.  I don't see a need for an eReader, can it be turned into more of a general computing device?  In short, can I turn it into an Android netbook that doesn't fold?

Doubtful.  The Book is Linux, not android.  I demoed one in the store and (IMHO) it is pretty flimsy.
