Og her er Anne F. Garrétas 10 principper for organisering af bøger, fra artiklen "On Bookselves", hentet inde på OuLiPo's forbilledligt smukke og sirlige hjemmeside; hende kan man da blive nødt til at opleve være bogstavelig live:
Principle # 1
Any set of books can be partitioned according to the following [russellian] principle :
- books in which one remembers having encountered at least once the word ‘book’ ;
- books that left no memory of having contained the word ’book’.
Principle # 2
Together might live :
- books written avoiding the letter ‘e’ ;
- books that, thankfully, spare the reader any dialogue ;
- books that abstain from focalized descriptions ;
- books written without assigning characters any gender marks ;
- books flouting the requirements of punctuation and spelling ;
Principle # 3
- books that could have belonged in Kimbote’s library ;
- books Rodolphe could have offered to Emma had he been Valmont and not Rodolphe ;
- books that would have fit in a room of one’s own ;
- books forgotten in motel rooms by Humble Humbert ;
- books from the Vaticana that could be adduced to justify Lafcadio’s gratuitous crime ;
- books in which Danish princes would be liable to find nothing but words, words, words ;
- books on which, while reclining in his captain’s armchair, and thinking of bulky white things, Ahab might have propped his ivory stump of a leg.
- books likely to cause Paolo and Francesca da Rimini to fall anew into Hell.
Principle # 4
- books doomed to fall on deaf ears;
- nosy books ;
- short-sighted books;
- narrow-minded books;
- books so full of bile they warrant a jaundiced view of their author ;
- highbrow books replete with flat-footed prose ;
- tear-jerkers ;
- no brainers.
Principle # 5
- books written in one language when they were obviously conceived in another ;
- books allegedly written in English though they feel like they’ve been translated from a foreign language by a translation automaton ;
- books evidently written under the spell of an overdose of German metaphysics ;
- books about which it is impossible to decide whether they’ve been written (allegedly in English) by a translation automaton or under the spell of an overdose of German metaphysics by a philosophy automaton.
Principle # 6
- books in which one encounters whales ;
- books in which not even the shadow of a whale is to be found ;
- books from which have disappeared, inexplicably, the whales one imagined there.
Principle # 7
- supposedly hot books that leave you cold ;
- books containing at least one sentence that would make you cry if you dared read it aloud ;
- books people you despise have disparaged (these books deserve respect) ;
- books, within which at least one character, one day, in the blink of a sentence, aroused in you at least an inkling of desire ;
- books so badly written they become fascinating.
Principle # 8
An alternative partitioning principle :
- homebound books ;
- nomadic books.
Among the latter, one may distinguish :
- books bought on the other side of the Seine (or the Thames, the Mississipi, the Tiber…) ;
- books that have crossed an ocean at least once ;
- books you missed, cruelly, one night at 3 a.m. because they had remained on the other side of the ocean ;
- books that show a clear proclivity to migrate under beds at the first opportunity ;
- books you took with you more than once to the countryside with no other consequence than affording them a breath of fresh air.
- books between whose pages one has tucked, to let them dry, leaves, flowers or grass picked on certain walks ;
- books containing at least one sentence you know by heart ;
- books that have left no memory ;
- books you remember reading lying down on a light-colored sofa in a room in some faraway city ;
Principle # 10
- books given to you by someone you love, loved, have loved ;
- books you talked about with someone you loved ;
- books you wish you had talked about with someone you loved ;
- books you imagine someone you love or you have loved could or could have enjoyed ;
- books you would never have read if someone you love or loved had not aroused your desire for them;
- books you wish or would have wished to read in bed with someone you love or have loved without ever telling them so ;
- books holding no relation of any sort with the love of anyone (but who remembers those ?).
