Quiz: Which Dewey Decimal System Category are YOU?

The library card catalog is an ancient system.

Remember back when you had to flip through drawer after drawer of cards, sorted by category, author, or title to figure out where on the shelf stacks the book you wanted might be, and then you had to run off to the stacks to find it?

Oh, the good old days of alphabetizing without a computer.

Book Funny

How about some old-timey erotic literature?

Today’s world is full of nostalgia.

Everywhere you look, people are yearning for “the good old days”, such as when kids could play in the woods all day without supervision. When you could eat undercooked meat or seafood without a care in the world.

And when writers were writers.  When books were, well, real BOOKS instead of this electronic crap.

What’s the Best American Novel ever written?

It is summer, and summertime can only mean one thing: the dreaded SUMMER READING LIST.

Remember those? You would be given a list of super-boring books that you absolutely had to read over the carefree sunny days spread out before you, and everyone always did the exact same thing:  everyone waited until two days before school was back in session for the Fall and rushed out to the store to buy the Cliffs Notes versions.

Smart kids would have purchased the Cliffs Notes earlier in the summer, while inventory levels were high.  Pity the kids who rushed to the local bookstore only to find the dreaded SOLD OUT sign on the rack.

Everywhere you look will be some ancient building or piece of art, forever preserved for the never-ending crowds of ooh-ing and aahh-ing tourists.  Even just stepping out of the high-speed, modern train station in Venice is like stepping immediately into the 14th century (get to Venice while you can, before it sinks away into the sea forever – it’s worth the trip).
