intrigueing: (doctor who: magic box)
I remember when I was younger I used to always laugh at the bits in Sherlock Holmes stories where Holmes would deduce some person's belongings successfully because all the belongings made sense together. I'm sure he could have made lots of deductions about people's bookshelves. I don't know about mine though. Here are all the books just on my bedroom bookshelf, in the order they're sitting in at the moment, from left to right and up to down (which doesn't include all the books of mine in the apartment). What would Holmes deduce about me?:
