Seen on the train today: fake book cover

by albertopolintan

I saw a fellow passenger use a sheet of newspaper as a book cover, effectively obscuring the title.

There are two curious things here:
– the mystery about the title is intriguing; is it a trashy novel or is she trying to protect the book
– the sheet of newspaper is in Polish. Other than the possibility that the reader is of that origin, the novelty of the accents and illegibility of the text suggests more about the reader than the true title ever would

Is this a new trend?
