How would you know if your eyes were closed?

This exercise is biased towards middle of the alphabet authors (fiction) if your bookshelf is properly sorted. The non fiction section could be in the outer

So Jeffrey Archer would be at the top of the dartboard, Stephen King would be the bullseye and Minette Walters double 3.

Hahahahaha!

If I tried this with a couple of the bookcases, I'd hit the glazed doors. That wouldn't be helpful.

Zymurgy1 - 12 Nov 2020 10:52:11 (#12 of 75)

Anyways

Fiction section - Liane Moriarty - The Last Anniversary

Non fiction - Kristin Weidenbach - Mailman of the Birdsville Track

And also broke (my wife’s) pencil.

Yersinia - 12 Nov 2020 10:54:34 (#14 of 75)

Missed the books and the pencil rolled down behind the sideboard.

So far, three books, one human injury , two broken implements and a lost pencil.

You just can't beat JtT.

Somewhere a nuclear technician in a white coat reading this thread thinks to himself: "fuck it, what's the worst that can happen?"

Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

(does it still count if I used a whiteboard marker instead a pencil?)

fogsake - 12 Nov 2020 10:58:09 (#18 of 75)

IKEA pencils are good for this.

tasselhoff - 12 Nov 2020 10:59:07 (#19 of 75)

angelico - 12 Nov 2020 10:59:25 (#20 of 75)
