Weekly Geek

Wow, this most recent Weekly Geek is really popular. Its so awesome to see so much participation for a creative challenge like this. It reminds me of a story my English Professor once told us in class about one of his Final Exams when he was going to college in the 50’s. The teacher had put on a sheet of paper the very last paragraph of each book that the students had read that semester. The test was to ID the book, the author and write something about each paragraph. The students received no warning as to the contents of the test, so the only way to know was to have a read the book. I believe my teacher ended up retaking the class.

But now I wonder how much more difficult it would be to ID the last line of 100 books.
