What Ray Bradbury novel is named for the temperature at which paper catches fire?

My guess: F 451

Answer: The temperature where paper catches fire and burns is 451 degrees Fahrenheit, or 233 degrees Celsius. Many people know this value from the Ray Bradbury novel, "Fahrenheit 451", a dystopian novel about a future American society where books are outlawed and "firemen" burn any books that are found. To create his title, Bradbury called up a local fire department to ask at what temperature paper would burn. The firemen put Bradbury on hold, burnt a book, and reported that the temperate it burnt at was "Fahrenheit 451".

Count von Count is my guess

Answer: Arithmomania is a mental disorder that can be characterized by a strong compulsion to count objects or actions. Count von Count is a Sesame Street Muppet that has a compulsive love of counting. He will count anything and everything, and laughs as he announces his total. The Count's main role on Sesame Street is to teach counting skills to children. The character is meant to parody Bela Lugosi's portrayal of Count Dracula. In historic folklore, vampires were depicted with the affliction of arithmomania, with a compulsion to count seeds or grains of sand.
