Fun and Games

Here is a fun way to spend some time today. Maximus Clarke has kindly created a puzzle out of Jorge Louis Borges' story The Book of Sand It is an eight page story and the pages are not in order. The game is to put the pages in order. If you do, you get to enter your name into the Hall of Fame. Not having a copy of the story handy I don't know if the final order, which I figured out in about half an hour, is the same as in the book. I assume it is even though I have a different translation than the one that Clarke uses. But looking up the story would be cheating. So give it a go for a little diversion, and let me know if you figure out if you got to put your name in the Hall of Fame too.
