    Since we can search for specific strings, we can make an infinite riddle game ! You have to search for a book containing the specific informations (hex,bookcase,shelf and title) of the next book in the puzzle, you can continue indefinitely, but you can’t change the end, you can only change the starting point, by finding another book refering to it. You can look at the 134th page of “ezoawlhqcutlzutcfece,wws” in hex `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’, Shelf 1 of Wall 2.

    The only problem for using this efficiently is the sheer size of the hexagons name: in my exemple, it is hard to differentiate it from the random background. Still, you can write a riddle hiding the shelf, the page or the title of the next book.

    Hm, I managed to find your hint, but upon looking in “bxjv…znha” at the location specified, I could not find a book with that title. It’s an interesting idea though!

    On a slightly related note, when I read the title of this thread, a different idea had popped into my head. I thought that this was going to be about word search puzzles, which are completely doable. Here’s one I made with safari animals:

    Even better is that you can’t cheat by using the “anglishized” feature ;). I suppose you can still find horizontal words using the browser search and using spaces in the words, but what fun is that?

    Oh, and of course, the solutions are always in the image archive:

    Yeah, I missed something: the address of an hexagon contains number but books don’t. We could replace them with plain text, but then it becomes excessively tideous to go from one book to the next. We would need an easier way to refer to other books.

    Ok, unless we can find really small adresses, it won’t do. However I had the idea of You are the hero books throughout the library. We could use a table, to store every adresses, and each book would refer to a line in the table, but it is not really contained in the library. I don’t think there is any optimal solution.

    I just realized bookmarks didn’t work the way I thought, so we can refer to bookmarks ! Like /bookmark.cgi?youarethehero66:1 It feels a bit like cheating though, since again, we’re using something which isn’t “absolute”… But still, we can give the bookmark link (or the address) of the first book, which can unravel into a You are the hero adventure ! Another advantage is that we can do loops.

    https://www.projectaon.org/en/xhtml-simple/lw/01fftd.htm is the link of the book I used, if anyone feels like searching and bookmarking every pages 😀
