35% is not high. I have sites with bounce rate >50% firmly holding #1 spot in quite competitive niches.
The proper bounce rate highly depends on the nature of the site. I wouldn't be surprised to find out that Wikipedia has >90% bounce rate (hmm,no that's pprobably too much, but still should be pretty high ...). Did they ever publish this kind of data?
