Words that Satisfy Me

I just love the way the letters are so beautifully shelved:
the o's, the k's, the e's,
so perfectly paired.

You know, I have never noticed before how lovely that is, the oo next to the kk next to the ee!

Do you think this word was coined describing a person who keeps track of books to be placed on a shelf or a person who keeps track of the revenue and expenses of a company or a person who keeps track of wagers?

The symmetry of that word has always bothered me.

(Stream of consciousness note: something about 'symmetry' bother me as well. And 'synergy', when used in a business context.)
