Judge a Book By Its Cover

Books, books and more books: a corner of the Willamette Week office is literally swimming (one might say drowning) in these erstwhile vehicles of information and delight. What is a put-upon reporter to do when faced with a mountain of text such as this? Choose a book like one would cereal—whatever's cheapest, most sugary, and probably colorful. Here follows the top three book covers from this rainy-day week, and a helpful random excerpt from each:

Thug Lovin' by Wahilda Clark (Book #4 in her Thug series)

"She leaned back and watched as Trae took another toke off his blunt. This was her baby. The love of her life. Shit, he was her life. Both of her parents were in federal prison serving lengthy sentences. You name it, they done it." [Ed note: We're not making this up.]

A Cold-Blooded Business by Marek Fuchs

"'It does not happen,' said Dubinsky, who was qualified by training and life experience, having once been hit by a car while riding his bicycle. It was almost like being hit by a pipe wrench. Dubinsky lost six hours of memory to an abyss."

The Maxims of Manhood: 100 Rules Every Real Man Must Live By by Jeff Wilser

"Maxim #41: No man makeup."
