10 Weird Book Pictures

I spend a fair amount of time trolling the web for images to go along with the posts here on Book Riot. Book covers and author photos are easy; it’s when I am looking for another rather generic picture of books that it can be tough.

Every once in awhile, I come across something headscratching, and I have been dumping these into a folder. But it’s time to show you some of what I’ve found. Check. These. Out.

Going to start you out slowly here. I guess this is a book cover of some kind? And presumably this is one of the “friends”? And is this a very large mushroom or a very small pig?

Pants on. Toilet paper still wrapped (?). Holding a fake iPad. I think I would feel better if this was what I think it might be. But I don’t know that it is.
