  117. That is really cute. If you use an alphabet system (A-E) for the rows top to bottom and use a numeral system (1-10) for the rows across.... you can find your images easily. Then mark on each page of the book the code for that image. I would take a few books with me when I was watching TV and marked all my books. Then you don't need your glasses.
