Bibliomane's Delight

Imagine flipping idly through a pile of battered '30s books at your local used-book haven - novels, cookbooks, maybe a health-fad or other self-improvement tome or two - and opening one at random... find this pasted inside. I don't know about you, but you'd very likely have to call the paramedics for me.

After, that is, I had a quick look at every other other volume in the vicinity just to make sure and then made it sucessfully past the suspicious woman at the register who wonders what possible interest I could have in Dr. Parringer's Infallible Celery Diet that I didn't even try and bargain her down from $2.50.
