Hardwood Flooring Lengths

I'm looking at installing more hardwood flooring (engineered or prefinished hardwood) in my home. Most manufacturers list the length of their flooring from as short as 9" or 12" up to 7 feet long and more. My problem is, I don't want to install any pieces shorter than about 24", because I think those short little lengths look just awful.

If any hardwood flooring installers are reading this, what are you generally seeing as the percentage of short (< 24") lengths you are getting in a carton these days? (In other words, what percentage am I going to have to throw away).

Thanks.
