Dr. Seuss Meets Roy G Biv :: The Update

It’s been four months since Coop and I arranged his Dr. Seuss books by spectrum. We’re not sure why we do these things. Probably just to hang out together for a few extra minutes. Or maybe we’re just Seussian savants?

The other day I noticed that the books had undergone a reordering over the last few weeks. Some books have jumped across the shelf, while whole groups remain intact. What does this all mean? *** gender bias? – the pink books areĀ  untouched ***

Here are the pics – what do you see? More analysis after the jump.

Here are some things I noticed:

  • Right off the bat, the pink books did not move. He actually likes two of those stories, so I’m wondering if there’s some pink-aversion because he’s a boy.
  • Somehow both copies of Oh The Pets You Can Get have moved together. This is fishy.
  • Hop on Pop and There’s a Wocket in My Pocket have switched positions.
  • The green and blue books must be popular, as they are dispersed. The white books, along with the pink, have moved less.

That’s all for now.
