Ohio Library applies the “It’s a 10, but…” trend to popular books

I don’t know about you, but I love seeing businesses apply online trends to their brand. Especially when it’s a place that could use a little extra love, like a library.

The Meigs County District Public Library in Ohio recently adopted the “It’s 10 years old, but…” trend and applied it to a few of its books on display. For those unfamiliar with the trend, people, especially on Tiktok, will record a video presenting their friends with a storyline to see where someone, who might be a 10, will rank for them. For instance:

He is a 10 but only speaks in Deadpool references. The friend may respond with “Oh, so that’s a 2” or “that’s a 15.” You can consult this Tiktok for even more details:

Is this a ridiculous trend? Maybe. But, applied to books? It’s incredible.

In a recent Facebook postMeigs Country District Library shared their own “It’s a 10 but…” with red flag stickers on their books. Looked:

As a Pride and Prejudice fan, the description of “He’s a 10 but he’s bossy and a drama queen” is such a perfect way to capture who Mr. Darcy was. However, someone named Scott F left a comment on the Meigs library photo that says,

While Austen’s comment isn’t wrong, I would have suggested, “He made the worst marriage proposal in history.”

Also, very accurate.

The expected red flag has been attached to the Fight Club book. It’s a 10 but… you can’t talk about it.

And, maybe my personal favorites are “He’s got a 10 but he forgot to check his pulse”, for Romeo and Juliet, and “He’s got a 10 but, you should stay out of his attic”, for The Picture of Dorian Gray.
