    Hey, Its so fun to share ideas! I just thought I would add mine.
    I think some maybe in the forest but not all. When we went
    and saw MS in Houston, After he read the title of ch 16, he looked up and said " I'm not so sure".???

    Good reporting, luckypony !

    Interpretation:

    Outside? Yes.

    All in the Forest? Not necessarily.

    Thanks for that, lp.

    Default Libraries

    Others have pointed out the following that could also support the idea of
    libraries.
    1. Pook read upside would spell "book".
    2. Books could be considered "talking trees."
    3. Don't be afraid of the dark could be an encouragement not to "stay in the dark," but to enlighten oneself by reading.
    4. Libraries ARE outside. One must go "inside" to get the book.
    5. It is a public place.
    6. (Save the tree's art.) Book's could be considered tree art.
    7. MS has donated thousands of his books to libraries already.
    8. The tokens are "accessible" to everyone. Many people could not necessarily go traipsing across a park or many public places to find one.
    However, the government regulates public places to be accessible.
    9. The Great Forest could mean where all the trees are, ie., libraries.
    10. MS definitely encourages everyone to read.

    Default Digit

    great post, hunnytree: agree

    on page 89 the word "digit" sticks out like a sore thumb (pardon the pun)...

    Default fields & streets

    ATT--Forward-- "You might even find one by accident, as you walk across a field or down a street." I don't feel token locations are limited to Forests. Springtime in Alaska whiteram

    And a "stand" or "strand" of trees, interpreted elsewhere as a row of trees, could be rows of books on shelves. The library thought is not out of the question.

    Excellent thought, dazed !!

    This is what I love about this forum !!

    I just posted this somewhere else....and WHERE DO YOU SEE TREES STANDING SIDE BY SIDE? Books? In a library ? What an analogy ! You're dazed; I'm jazzed!!

    In essence, he defines how he is going to use the word himself WITHIN the same sentence.
    He dreamt of trees standing side by side within a mist and rising from the mist, in the center of the strands of trees, was the face of his wife.
    Yes, I agree MS is using this symbolism to describe Ana in her prison of willow.
    Her prison appears like "strands of trees, trees standing - side by side".
    Carry on !

    Dewey Numbers -

    525 Earth (Astronomical geography) (first 2 fairies hand numbers)
    415 Structural systems (Grammar) (next 3 fairies hand numbers)
    321 Systems of governments & states (keep coming up with 321)
    322 Relation of state to organized groups (page 19)

    The number catagories relate to what we have been working on.

    When I put 525 in my libraries search engine, the only book that came up was this:

    Copy Information Call Number 921 LIN
    Title ABRAHAM LINCOLN, VOL. 1: THE WAR YEARS Author SANDBURG, CARL Main Entry - Personal Name Sandburg, Carl, 1878-1967. Uniform Title Abraham Lincoln: the war years. Title Statement Abraham Lincoln; the war years, by Carl Sandburg. With 414 half-tones of photographs and 249 cuts of cartoons, letters, documents. Publication Distribution, (Imprint) New York, Harcourt, Brace & company [c1939] Physical Description 4 v. fronts., illus. (incl. maps) plates, ports., facsims. 25 cm. General Note "First edition after printing 525 de luxe copies." Subject Added Entry - Personal Name Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865. Subject Geographical Name United States History Civil War, 1861-1865.

    Strange, but true.

    Another thought - when you take kootenstoopits and pickensrooters and put them one under another then cross out the letters that do not match vertically, this could be a code of some sort. 6 letters in the same spots and 8 different letters.

    This has been a very good thread. I don't think that all the tokens are hidden near rivers or libraries, etc., but perhaps one is at each type of place. It has been a while since I've read any posts on libraries and I was reminded of a post I put on ATT back in early April. I've copied it here:

    This hunt has taken me down several rabbit trails and some of those trails have led me to the titles of children's books. I anagrammed some letters from ATT and got Egg Tree. I googled that and found Willard Library located at 21 First Avenue, Evansville, IN. (This is a really cool, old looking building) There is also a Willard Park near the library (with trees of course). I live in the east so I won't be visiting this site. If anyone finds anything, let me know and I'll tell you where I got the anagram. Seems unlikely to me, but my search kept finding other "coincidences" that led me to this site again. If nothing else, I checked out this book from the library just before Easter and enjoyed reading it to my son - that's a special treasure.

    I don't think this is necessarily about a token being hidden near a library, not to say a token could not or is not hidden near a library.

    What I DO think is:

    It may very well be about the code of numbers represented by the Dewey Decimal System showing us the name or names of book(s) that will tell us where to find the exact location of a token.

    Thus,

    The SANCTUARY will be SPELLED OUT.

    I think that it is entirely possible that the phrase "strands of trees" which MS himself describes as "trees standing side by side" may very well have the same relevance that "Save the Trees Art" has.

    A decimal is NARY a WHOLE.

    mommagerer .... your post was AWESOME. I loved your find. This feels "hot" to me. I almost think I can hear someone yellin' "Ollie Ollie oxen free!"
