The Dog-Ear Score

Quantifying the value of a book is difficult. At Brand Autopsy, we have developed a scientific method to do just that. We call it the Dog-Ear Score.

D-Es = D-Ep/p

Yep, the Dog-Ear Score (D-Es) is equal to the number of pages with corners folded over (D-Ep) divided by the number of pages in the book (p).

My copy of Free Prize Inside, with 239 pages, has 23 dog-ear pages. That’s a 23:239 or a score of 9.6%. (Some pages in my book have double dog-ears pages. That’s dog-ears on the top and bottom pages to account for great information on the front and back of a page!)

As for johnmoore … he had 43 dog-ear pages (photo above) for an unprecedented score of 18%.

Please share your Dog-Ear Score with us after you finish reading Free Prize Inside.
