A Title By Any Other Name (or, You Really Can Judge a Book By the Cover)

The other night, my good friend G. posted this on Facebook, with an accompanying explanation.

"I picked up this book at the library - I tend to like mindless cozy murder mysteries - the name on the spine is "Button-Holed."  But, as you can see, the library put their label in a bad position on the front." 

(Thank you, G. - and the Omaha Public Library - for the blog post that wrote itself.)

that's really bad planning! Funny as all get out but shame on the library staff who did that.

The book was quite good and I'm looking forward to the next in the series

Hahahahahaha. If I worked in a library, I would totally do something like that on purpose just for laughs.

Surely they didn't past the label on by accident.
