Festivus Scale of Strength: Weighty Books


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.
