15.5 - Scan It
The first UPC (Universal Product Code or Bar Code) marked item ever scanned at a retail checkout was at the Marsh supermarket in Troy, Ohio at 8:01 a.m. on June 26, 1974, and was a 10-pack (50 sticks) of Wrigley's Juicy Fruit chewing gum.
Read a book where ALL of the letters UPC are found in the title and/or subtitle.

Dee (austhokie) | 7688 comments damn this was hard...times like this I wish I could do a search of my books and limit results to titles and to-read shelf only...really wish GR would develop those search options

Jennifer | 72 comments Since no one else has asked, I must be missing something really obvious, but... How do I find letters in a UPC code?

For example, the book Mary Poppins Opens the Door.

The UPC code is listed here (https://www.buycott.com/upc/978054443...) as 780544439580, 7 80544 43958 0. So there are no letters.

Or "The Happiness Project,"s UPC code per this site (http://www.upcitemdb.com/upc/82759039...) again, no letters, only numbers.

Please advise.

Thanks!

The task is to find a book with the letters u, p and c in the title. You don't need to do anything with an actual upc code.

Bryony (bryony46) | 362 comments Could I just check if The Double Clue (Quick Reads 2016): And Other Hercule Poirot Stories works, please? I think "And Other Hercule Poirot Stories" counts as a subtitle but just want to be sure. Thank you!
