EVER SERVE DINNER ON A PHOTOGRAPHIC PLATE? 

   A press release for new web site (ehobbies.com) described 
   their "Find A Hobby" feature, where your answers to a series 
   of preference questions leads to a recommended hobby, such 
   as Astronomy, Birding, Comic Books & Action Figures, etc. 
   (conveniently, the "Shopping" feature of the site caters to all 
   of these hobbies). 

   So what questions would you ask to determine if someone is 
   inclined to bibliophilia?  (Besides, "Are you plain nuts?") 
   Here are a couple candidates: 

   1. Do you ever give or throw books away? 

       a. What is a book? 
       b. Once in a while. 
       c. Why would anyone ever want to give up a book? 

   2. You're on vacation with your family, walking to an 
       ice cream stand, and you pass a curious-looking used 
       book store.  Do you: 

        a. Keep walking. 
        b. Hand your spouse some money, and say 
            "I'll catch up in a few minutes." 
        c. Hand your spouse the car keys, and say 
            "I'll hitchhike back to the hotel."
