Idiot wants 150 books (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

clot

Here is my best explanation:

'idiot' is the definition.

(I've seen this in other clues)

'150 books' is the subsidiary indication.

'150' becomes 'cl'.

'books' becomes 'ot' (abbreviation for Old Testament).

'cl'+'ot'='clot'

'wants' is the link.

(Other definitions for clot that I've seen before include "Mass of coagulated blood", "Silly billy", "Semi-solid mass -- dunce", "A lump in a blood vessel", "Thick lump - thick person", "Mass of material", "Coagulate -- 1 across person", "Fool; solidified blood", "Coagulated blood; twit" and "3 [DUMMY]".)
