Quiz: If you want an education [ended]

“If you want to get laid, go to college. If you want an education, go to the library.” - Frank Zappa

So in this quiz you can safely rule out the Larry Laffer games. Most other adventuregame characters appear to spend a lot of time among books though, as shown in these 111 pictures of books, bookshelves, bookcases and libraries

Unlike my previous quizzes I like to try the rounds/posting method for a change of dynamics and to accomodate the forum members that don’t want to use pm. There’s a lot of low hanging fruit here I think, so everyone should have a chance to name some.

You’re allowed 4 answers in the first round. If you find someone gave the same answer earlier you can make another guess (at another picture). Please don’t edit your posts.
The next round will start when I announce it but I plan to give round 1 some time so everyone gets a chance.

Round five has started with 7 guesses.

Yeah, I’m lazy. Crazy
Just like in real life things are changing though. There’s one pic from a fairly recent game that I had to look really hard for. Lots of interiors but nobody has any books…

@Karlok and SweetDalilah: one of your guesses was already done by Diego so you’re allowed an extra guess in this round.

Wilco and others, please don’t edit your posts. It makes administration unnecessarily hard. Smile
Just make a new post if you have anything to add.
