    Once or twice a week I tidy up the books on my daughters book shelf.
    I put them in size order.
    They stand up better.
    Look better.
    And can be easily viewed with no books hidden.

    Unbeknownst to me (until tonight) my wife tidies up the books too.
    She puts them in order of likability (her choice).
    And suitability for a bedtime read.

    This charade has been going on for a year!

    Sounds to me like the parents might be challenging her.

    Possibly, yes. As a parent, I would be grateful to find any type of order.
