We've all been there: you found the most amazing book to read but unfortunately, its cover is horribly embarrassing, and you're afraid to take it out in public. Well, never fear! Below is a list of ways I've compiled to combat this terrible syndrome known as What-Were-the-Cover-Designers-Thinking-itis.
2. The Artful Hand. But maybe you don't want to permanently injure your spine. You can always hold the book up like you usually would, and simply press one palm against the most embarrassing aspect of the cover. Sure, you might look a bit odd and people will probably give you stranger looks than you would have gotten otherwise, but at least not a single person will see that girl and boy making out on the front of your book.
3. The Paper Bag. This is, of course, the best solution of the three. Simply place a paper bag over your head, cut slits for your eyes, and read normally. The people around you might be silently judging, but since your face will be covered, they'll never know it's you. You can read in peace, except for the part where, y'know, you have a paper bag on your head.
So what are your thoughts on humiliating covers and methods to hide them?
