24 Festive Tasks: Door 20 – Festivus, Task 2:
The Scale of Strength: Pick 3 of your weightiest tomes and place them on a scale. Tell us the total weight.
I used Shakespeare’s Complete Works, my copy of the illustrated guide to Houses of the National Trust, and Eye to Eye, a collection of close-up photos by nature photographer Frans Lanting.
Their combined weight came to a little over 6 kg (= approx. 13.2 lbs) — I used a “people” scale, so can’t say it with any greater precision.
