Do you have a card? (Posted on 2008-05-12) Difficulty: 2 of 5

You find yourself half way between Tokyo and Rio de Janeiro; about as far from Mexico City as from Moscow.

Albert Einstein waits to the left, ready to explain his theory of relativity. A short distance to your right James Watt hopes to recount his development of the steam engine to you. John Steinbeck and Isaac Bashevis Singer crouch over you, vying for your attention.

Your surroundings are conventional and functional. One aspect stands out: A piece of furniture - represented in 2 or 3 specimens in the typical home - recurs here hundreds of times.

What are the two common names for this item of furniture?

Some Thoughts Considering the figurative sense of card ..... Comment 12 of 12 |
(In reply to Puzzle Solution by K Sengupta)

Considering card in a figurative sense immediately brings to one's mind, the famous sci-fi author Orson Scott Card, the most famous living celebrity worldwide having the surname "Card".

So the collection also includes works by Orson Scott Card, apart from books authored by other four.

In addition, the said set of collections may also figure as a part of a domestic  collection in the book case (or bookshelf) of a collector.

Consequently, we can now assert that the bookcase (bookshelf) solution is unoque to the given riddle.
