I have three volumes on my shelf: Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, Damien
Broderick's excellent The Spike (a treasured Doherty hardback first edition,
graciously autographed by the author himself), and K Eric Drexler's
Nanosystems (also autographed by the author).  Assume each of these volumes
is exactly one inch thick, adjacent and arranged in my own peculiar system,
alphabetical by first name of the author.  A bookworm devours a straight
lone hole beginning outside the front cover of Atlas Shrugged and ending up
outside the back cover of Nanosystems.  


How far did the wretched beast travel?





Read carefully, watch for gotchas.
