I remember I blew about 60k on books trying to get my Aisha over 100

I'm now reading free books to all my pets, but I'm trying to keep it that my Aisha is the smartest one.

All of my pets are Master Genius, or higher. I got all my books from the Money Tree! If you go on everyday you can get many books in a week!

I really should read more books to my pets, but I don't. Why? Because frankly, it seems like a waste of money, as it has no use onsite. I mostly read my pets books that I get for free.

Work is work, Eric. You don't show up late, you don't make excuses, and you don't not work. If it wasn't "work," they wouldn't call it work. They'd call it "super-wonderful, crazy-fun time!

I don't. I have a pet that's 3,500 days old and still has never read a book. I brag more about that than I would if my pet has read a lot of books. Books are a waste of money, unless they add a perk to reading books. Maybe they could let you have an advantage in certain games if you've read a book about it.

I used to read books that I randomly chance upon to my pets, now however, I will just sell books off or store in my SDB as most of the cheap books have already been read by my pets.

My goal has always been to get the book trophy, but unfortunately the only way to get it would be to literally read every book in Neopia, so I've stopped trying as often. But anytime you get a free book totally read them to your pet.

I wish they had an avatar for how many books read or SOMETHING to make all the work worthwhile.

On this board, Flyingeevee mentioned that in a NT a few months ago, TNT mentioned maybe making an avatar for a certain level on intelligence.

I didn't trip, I was just testing gravity. Yep... it still works.

Well. I mentioned my friend who has a pet with 172 intelligence already....so yeah. I want to give my pet 169 intelligence now just for the fun of it (and so my pet doesn't seem like an idiot when I compare with my friend) :P

So whenever I get a free/cheap book I give it to my pet. But I don't want to go overboard just yet. Maybe when I'm done filling up my gallery

My Kougra is 676 days old and is at the level of "Ultimate Genius (176)". I don't read to her every week...Heck, not even every month. But every once in a while when I'm on one of my collection shopping sprees, I'll scour around for books and pick up a "care package" for her. I just read a few to her this morning because of it being half-price day. Plus I just like being able to say my imaginary pet is a genius :P

Currently nursing unrequited love for Lana Parrilla.

My pet is at 155, but has read only 25 books. There are other ways to improve intelligence other than books. I can't remember them now, but I think there used to be a game that used to randomly increase intelligence while playing. There is also a battledome item that steals intelligence from your 2 player opponent. However most serious battledomers frown upon using it. There are also some Neggs that improve intelligence.

I only started my account last week, and though I know I'll never get the trophies for reading books, I like to use it as something to aim towards. So I try and get my hands on as many books as I can

So far I only read books I win to my pets, after I've checked their value in SW. My favorite pet gets dibs on any new book, then I go down the list. If they've all read it (or don't want to read it) then it gets sold.

On my old account that I lost I read about 150 books to my pet .. but that was 3 yrs ago ... I don't read books to them anymore ... hehe .. sometimes Coltzan or the Wheel of knowledge increase their intelligence and that's good enough for me

they aren't going to get a PhD anytime soon :graduated:

I do, I just like the idea of having my pet read, though only one really reads. But she's at 1175 books. One of these days, I'm aiming for the book award, now I just read whatever I grab when I go on buying sprees.
