      I thought that you should check this out: Organizing by color - it's the grand daddy version of your experiment!

      Cool - everyone should organise their books by colour!

      Dear Patrick
      Love this photo - would I be able to use in a ppt slide for a library induction?
      Educational use - no profit involved, will attribute.
      Nice bright image of books!
      Many thanks.

      Sue, of course you can - it is creative commons licensed and being an academic myself I love educational uses and libraries. Enjoy!

      Patrick- This is just great! I'm going to print a copy for the small, rural public library I work in; the bathroom walls need color. (But don't think my choice of display area reflects on the image, the bathroom walls are the only walls without books!) I will follow the CC license, of course, and put your name on it.

      I used your picture with a quote about books (of course) on my blog. Thanks!
