Do you read books to your pet?

Recommended Posts

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.

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

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.

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.

Does anyone know which books increase your pets intelligence by 1 and which ones by 2? Because I noticed that most of the times it's going up by 2 and I want my pet's intelligence to be 169 :S

Recently I went on a bit of a book kick, and read any books I could find for less than 700 NP or so to my main pet, just for the sake of it. There's actually quite a lot of them that are so inexpensive, and it's nice to look at your pets stats and see a nice number, even if it is relatively useless as a stat :P

 

Most the time, though I'll see any books worth more than 1000 NP, or hoard them to sell after they're inflated a bit, if they're from some kind of limited release.

I think it's completely random, like most things on the site that offer stats. You just have to get lucky, the title doesn't matter.

Any book I get I read to my pets, and I try to make sure that they have read the same amount as each other (although not necessarily the same books, just whatever comes along I guess). My pets have only read 21 books each now and even though it's a useless stat, I do want to make them really smart (like me...lol :graduated:).

I also think that there should be more perks for smart pets, however I can't think of anything, so I guess it's not that important.

When I first started neopets I read as many books as I could find to my Ultimate Genius (532) Kougra, Ride_The_Lightning_1.

But then I realized that intelligence doesn't really mean as much as it should, so I stopped and began to invest in my gallery *lol*

And it also bothers me that other players can't see what books your pet has read :(

Whenever I get a free book, I read it to my pet, but I check the price of the book first. If it's expensive, I keep it in my SDB but if it's a cheap book, I just go ahead and read it to my pets. ^^

I want FabulousMcOreo to have a Book Trophy. Either Booktastic or Regular... I go through phases when I will go and buy all the books I can get my hands on. Might do that again soon, actually....

yeah. I finished my goal of 169 intelligence today thanks to half price day (that's the only time I spent money of books). Now i'm done with reading books. If it's a cheap book that I can't make decent profit from I'll read it to my 2nd pet though

I don't spend more than probably 500 NP's per book but I don't look for them. If I see them somewhere, I'll buy them. If I get them for free I automatically read them to my Elephante. She/he (changes all the time with the lab ray) has an intelligence of ULTIMATE GENIUS (116). I love reading her/him books!

I read books to my pet all the time! I'm still holding out for an avatar that you can get from reading a certain amount of books. I doubt I'll get a trophy, but I could probably get an avatar that didn't require a trophy.

Like many others here, I don't spend my money on books. I take the books from dailies and the advent calender and read them to my pets. I like my pets to have high intelligence, mainly because it sounds cool and shows hard work.

Intelligence is pretty useless, unless you are a young hardcore player with lot of free time (or an unemployed adult) to reach the top list and get the award.

 

But yeah i read every free book i got to my Shoyru he is currently Ultimate Genius 318.
