    this is sounding more and more promising...

    Plus notes of this being dewey decimal...

    When was the last time any of us used the system... when we were young... hence a kid might see it easier than an adult...

    Where is the system used... Libraries... some of which are very public indeed.

    What was the other one i was thinking of? I dont know cuz i got excited about the idea and forgot...

    Now we should look into the number system and see what the number for att would be. would the same number be used in every library? how are the numbers decided and how could we use this as a key to deciphering anything else?

    Great work.

    It is probably a good idea to review all of the zipcodes that people have found, and see if any of them are promising Dewey categories.

    Does anyone know of a good online search tool for Dewey numbers?

    It's not a place, it's a yearning. It's not a race, it's a journey.

    I think you should look the other direction... find the dewey decimal number for ATT and use it as a key to the codes in the book...

    I just spent some time looknig around and unfortunately the dewey decimal system has many numbers over 5 digits long... but there is still the chance that ATT is only five and this could be a major breakthrough...

    The Library of Congress lists the ATT Dewey number as 398.2 22

    It's not a place, it's a yearning. It's not a race, it's a journey.

    I really don't think they could be hidden in libraries..... "each is outside for you to find", plus he says you could find one while walking across a field.

    very true that they most likely are not in libraries but the dewey decimal code could still hold signifigance.

    I know there are issues with the library potential here. However, consider the clues carefully before tossing aside. Perhaps there is something...maybe not necessarily akin to finding a token inside a library inside a book...too easy for a random find to occur...but...let me show you some things I ran across while researching the Dewey Decimal system. Bear with me. I love kid's learning websites for a couple of reasons. If I were to try "Being Michael Stadther", an author writing a book for kids...I would want to get kids to think about the tools needed to guide kids into more and more books....like the book I, MS, am writing....and as I, that is, me, now, thought about the following, some things came to mind.

    What DOES MS consider the REAL TREASURE? He has so stated. Interpretation...."the joy of reading the book itself." What does MS consider a "collector of precious things." Are MS' clues multi-layered?

    HINT: TACKLE REPOSITORYS

    A place where there are books. Repositories of books.

    Where are these precious things, these books collected?

    Welllllll,,,,, in a few places...actually...

    ..........in book stores

    ....where MS does signings all the time.

    ..........and in libraries.

    What about this "Dewey Decimal System" anyway?

    What is a call number?
    Every book in the library is given a unique call number to serve as an address for locating the book on the shelf. The call number itself is composed of two parts--Dewey Decimal Classification and the Cutter number or book number.
    http://www.mtsu.edu/~vvesper/dewey.html#List

    TWO PARTS = AN EVEN CODE
    The Dewey system has ten main classes...Each of the...classes...ten divisions.
    TEN CLASSES - TEN DIVISIONS = AN EVEN CODE
    REMEMBER: When filing in a decimal system, file digit by digit--not by whole number.
    WITH ONE PIECE NARY

    A DECIMAL is NARY a WHOLE
    .

    THE SECRET IS NOT HALF, BUT IT IS NOT WHOLE.

    What about the "Cutter" number?
    REMEMBER: the cutter number is a decimal not a whole number and is also read digit by digit.
    I am not disuaded by the comment that "Each is outside for you to find". I am persuaded that we have not fully examined this potential clue.
    "When you created the book, you also created us."

    Right on Hunnytree. MS has said in interview after interview that "anyone who can read can discover...". In the radio interview on the ATT site he says "I think anybody who can read can figure this out."

    He keeps stressing the reading part. Reading will be required. Hmm...

    It's not a place, it's a yearning. It's not a race, it's a journey.

    I read that at a recent book signing a question was posed about the two non book clues. MS responded by saying the intended solutions to these clues were posted on the official ATT website.

    I anxiously await the excuses that support believing there is more to these non book clues.

    I believe that the tokens ARE NOT in libraries. I believe they are in forests, as the book says. The Jewels are Hidden in the Forest.

    And the clue, each is outside for you to find, I believe is accurate.
    What is the sound of one hand clapping?
