Another picture of my bookshelves. I can't work out where to shelve my puzzle book. Can you help me?

  • $\begingroup$ Rather than adding Stangroom's book, if you removed the Pollan and Harris ones and replaced them with another one by Rovelli then there'd be something of interest. I suspect that's pure coincidence, though. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Very possibly. You might find quite a few coincidences if you were allowed to change four elements of the puzzle! $\endgroup$ Nov 9, 2021 at 9:05

You can place it just to the left of

The Rights of Woman.

This way, the titles are in reverse alphabetical order by second letter, the preferred way to shelve books in, um, your house?
- First letters: ESIAI (E) TRAG
- Second letters: VUTPM (I) HEDA

Put it between It Must Be Beautiful and A Place of My Own. It will look best there, since it's the same height as The Rights of Woman.

  • $\begingroup$ Good try - but who arranges their books so they look good? $\endgroup$ Nov 9, 2021 at 9:02
  • $\begingroup$ @MichaelMaggs Anyone who has only ten books, I guess. I was led to this answer by the visual tag, which implies (to me) that the visual aspect of the picture (and not just the titles and authors) is important somehow. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ From MichaelMaggs's previous puzzles of this kind, it seems evident that he has a lot more than 10 books. (And a pretty interesting selection of 'em, too.) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I've used the visual tag as it could be anything in the photo: titles and authors, of course, but potentially anything else too $\endgroup$ Nov 9, 2021 at 13:10
