Nice tricky teaser! I thought the answer was the teaser since you read the words "several books" before you reached the end of the sentence.

Nice one I thought in a dictionary - "book", "novel", etc come before "sentence" but the given answer is much more clever

Got it immediately. Funny how sometimes the right answer just hits you and you think of course, how easy. Good teaser.

EASY,HEARD THIS ONE BEFORE

My response was nursery school. You read lots of books with single words on a page. No sentences. So you can read several books and not complete a sentence.

Wow!! That was A good one. I was suprised by the answer but it sure is true and I hope to never find out that way. lol

Like Brandon, I read the question and knew the answer. Great fun to feel 'quick' occasionally. Good one

That was a nice one. answer just randomly clicked in my head XD

This is the first Teaser that was easy for me. Got it right away from
the clue Sentence. I said Jail, same thing.

Thanx Rose

good one!

Nov 09, 2007

A-a-a-w-w ... Gro-o-oan! Like "Leftclick," I came up with dictionary ... you can read all the words in a given book, but not in the right order; ergo, you haven't read a complete sentence before finishing the book (maybe). That is a clever Teaser, thanks.
oddreyus*
Nov 09, 2007

I also thought that the answer was the teaser, because before you are done with the sentence, you wil finish reading the words "several books".
I liked the real answere though, it was clever. I never would have thought of that.

Nov 09, 2007

gooooooood one =D very clever. hit myself in the head when i read the answer though

HAHAHA!!!... i've been in prison and didnt get the answer to that one... real good

Nov 09, 2007

These are the type of teasers that I know whatever logical answer I come up with will be wrong! ! Good teaser.
vlermaAus*
Nov 10, 2007

Sorry this one I knew before I finished reading the sentence, not that I have any experience with the prison system other than as a guard in the sheriff's office. But I do remember the prisoners asking for new books. Nice job though.

I thought it was the Bible. They have many books you can read the title of without reading one sentence. It was fun any way. I enjoyed it. Please keep posting.\

Yeah I got the "word 'several books'(in the teaser answer" along with many others, apparently. The really dumb thing though, is that I had come across this teaser a while ago while browsing, and got the same answer I got this time, and so I knew it was wrong.
swirlingmistAus*
Nov 15, 2007

That is a cute teaser... good job.
AndrewWalkerAfi*
Nov 15, 2007

I thought it was the teaser it self

Teeheehee!! I loved this one, partly because it was silly and partly because it was easy. A good pick-me-up first thing in the m- uh, afternoon.

Dec 09, 2007

Haha!!! Great one!!! I didn't get it... But this is definitely a fantastic teaser! Good job!!

I thought this teaser.

When you read the question, you read the words 'several books' before you finish reading the question.

Nice teaser though
coltonr1Aus*

This one got me.. Nice one.

Sep 30, 2009

I thought it was anywhere really, if they were picture books, you have no problem with sentences. But nice play on words

Good teaser! The only problem is that some (or most) prisons don't allow too many books.
GreenApples27*nz*
Nov 09, 2010

Great teaser, I didn't get it myself.
phyllisa*us*
Nov 09, 2010

I thought library, because you aren't supposed to talk.
tonjawithaj*us*
Nov 09, 2010

My first thought was the teaser as well, since you have to read the words "several books" before finishing the sentence!
eclectric*
Nov 09, 2010

thought it was match books
sunnybonghits*
Nov 09, 2010

very good. i was afraid it was going to be something dumb, but i liked this one
omasAau*
Nov 09, 2010

Very good one! Beauty of this teaser is it's both logic and trick as it tricked me in the meaning of the word 'sentence'.

I was thinking either library where u can read several books in catalogue, or this teaser itself where words 'several books' comes before the end of the sentence.
drussel3*us*
Nov 09, 2010

Good one.

Nov 19, 2011

i agree with 4demo

Jan 09, 2012

I forgot it was a trick teaser! I thought it was "anywhere" cos u can read books anywhere without -saying- anything

May 22, 2012

I got this right, and couldn't figure out the trick. LOL

Heard this various times over the years.
Maggiethe8th*us*
Nov 09, 2013

I was so pleased that I went back to re-read the title-that's what 'gave' it to me!
HABS2933Aca*
Nov 09, 2013

I don't normally check the category but for some reason, did so today, so I was prepared for there to be a trick to it. I guessed "the dictionary" since book, comic, hardcover, manual, novel, novella, paperback, primer, and reader (to name but a few) all come before sentence alphabetically and therefore would be read before you finish sentence
eighsseAus**
Nov 09, 2013

I like this one a lot, very clever Only thing I don't get is how it is rated at nearly-average difficulty... I thought it was very easy.
