...but it's obviously the heavier half.

Dude, you have a wonky link to your frapper thang - it connects to your id page. I know, it gave me fits at first, too. Essentially, the addy should be http://www.frappr.com/(yourgroupname)Fix it and I'll make it much easier for you to stalk me.Oh, and you can NEVER have too many books, so definitely MORE COWB ... er, SHELVES!
I am sorry, did you say less books? There is no reason to even think someone could not own enough books,
So, I took that test - and didn't even cheat (which I'm not ABOVE, mind you, but this time I didn't), and I got 27. So why don't I feel so smart?I missed #s 10, 11, 14, 17, 28, and 30. And I think I will go crazy if I cannot find the answers. Is there a key somewhere, or am I doomed to be an insane genius?
More shelves! More! More! More!
One can never have too many books.
I didn't take the Mensa test yet, because it's Sunday morning and I don't want to have to think that hard. But, since I'm apparently not smart enough to figure out how to add myself to your map, I guess there's no point...I definately don't belong in Mensa. Sigh.
More shelves.Will add self to Frappr map at some point after my cup of caffeine has taken effect.
I'm a genius, but a lazy one; after 19, I lost all motivation and commenced to watch the Rick Mercer Report.Oh, and I say more shelves.
If you or someone you know is handy and likes to build things, here's a link to a shelving system my husband is planning to build.http://www.newyankee.com/getproduct3.cgi?0513I found you through TBs Soul Gardening site.
More shelves of course! One can never have too many books. :)Kestrel
Are you kidding me? Of course you want more shelves! And a cool ladder attached.
More books. Lots more books. Who need shelves?
You CAN'T have too many books, there's no such thing. You must be shelf-poor, there's no way around it.I got to 21 correct answers on the Mensa test and then got so frustrated at not being able to get it to agree to '13 loaves in a baker's dozen' that I flounced off. It can't be *me* that's wrong, so it MUST be the test, of course...~Eileen
that is just perfect to me.
It's Monday... Taking any kind of test, unless it's to see how long I can stare at the computer with a glazed look in my eyes, is not going to happen. I LOVE your book collection. You're going for the library look right? Definitely more shelves!
When we got married we both had about an equal number of books (around 800 each). Over the years we've just added on. Notice we're not into making them look decorative. They're just piled every which way in a semi-alphabetical style. I got my score up to 25. I couldn't get the "13 loaves in a baker's dozen" to register either. Nilbo got that one, so maybe we're wrong and he's got the real right answer.Those near-the-ceiling shelves are in our sons' bunkroom. They actually go all the way around the room. I have no idea where we can stick a shelf now. Maybe our bedroom, but there's already a small shelf now. It's an illness, I tell you!
I'm going to weigh in on the side of fewer books. I know, I know - it's crazy. But let me explain:I have lots of books. I have many favorites. One of the best, most cleansing things in this world is getting rid of books. I usually sell 'em online. When they won't sell, I trade them off via Paperback Book Swap. When all else fails, I donate. BUT, that's because I don't reread many of my books. And I have a small house. It looks like your books get used and reused, and you have a big house (bigger than mine, anyway ;)). It might be time to re-examine the books that just sit there, though. What have they done for you lately?
First time here and enjoying reading! I have tons of books too, but once a year or so I go through and have a clear-out. If I'll never read it again, or it doesn't have a 'pretty' spine, I sell it on Amazon. Of course I use the money to buy more books.
Those pictures look like Larry McMurtry's bookshop in West Texas.
Oh! Oh! Misfit's got it! I've always wanted shelves with a ladder. How cool is that?! Climbing a ladder and pushing across rows of shelves to get the book you want. Aaaaah.
I'm not going to take that test because I'm extrememly competitive, and a lower score could shatter my glass-ornament ego this morning.My vote: Bigger house! More of everything!
I got a 21, too, before my brain started to melt. Where is the key for this thing? I must know the other answers!Definitely more shelves. Because they are so decorative.
I have a more cowbell shirt! You go Nilbo! What's a frappr? And, Wordgirl, you know how I feel about a lot of stuff. I'm sure there are a few books you could part with and give to a charity. And really, you should either alphabetize them or do that dewey decimal code thingy. My blood pressure is freaking out just thinking about it....but you could by one of those cool label makers!!!
Well, duh. More shelves.
Yikes! It's the key to the test!http://www.stirman.net/see "we is smart"
OY! Calling foul, because in North America, we say you are ON a team, rather than IN one. I guess, as they say, cultural factors do play a part.And the 13 Loaves in a Baker's Dozen tried not to register for me - I tried everything, then found if I (incorrectly) omitted the apostrophe in "baker's", it accepted my answer.Evidently, Mensa doesn't know it's proper use of apostrophe's.
You should never show a messy bookshelf to a room of librarians. We all agree you need to straighten up those shelves, and they will look much better. Two of us did not like your track lighting.If this room is going to be a den, I think you need more shelves and books to define and balance the room.Pretend you are randolph Hearst, whip out the credit cards, and buy zillions of books.Besides me, the rest are Telephone Reference, Queens Library, NYC
