Snow College Library was full of mystery last semester as they covered some of their books in brown paper, leaving only vague clues on the front as to the contents.
I checked a couple of them out just to see what they were about. One was a book I'd read before, called, "Quiet." (The clue? "Shhh.") The other was a collection of Sherlock Holmes stories! Being a fan, I read those with delight. (Clue: a drawing of footprints and a magnifying glass on the brown paper!)
Are you the kind of person who would take a chance on a paper covered book? Or do you like to be certain of what you're getting?
