This is the thirtieth puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Olga. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out how many books are stacked on the table.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Make a note of all the books you see using the Memo function. For example, take a look at how many books each librarian can see from her viewpoint.

    That can help you determine how many books are in the center pile.

Hint Two
    Next, let's figure out how many books are in the lower-left corner of the table. Can you see which stack that is from the other librarian's perspective?

Hint Three
    You can also work out the number of books stacked in the top-right corner from the viewpoint of the librarian at the bottom of the screen.

    That leaves only two piles of books to figure out!

Super Hint
    The books in the top left corner can be counted using the top librarian's viewpoint. Don't forget that from her point of view, the stack is on the right.

    You already know that the bottom-left corner contains only two books, so the three books that she sees must be in the top-left corner.
