Source is BetterBookTitles

I know this is not Britney or Gaga or Bieber but we still do books and satire here no? I got this  from one a not entirely popular website (but I have used it as a source before) that got it from another  that I sourced as well though I didn't actually steal any proprietary images from individuals that I know of. Hope this is up to standard as it took me a while. If not, oh well. It is Friday  night though so I thought I'd try something fun for those of stuck at home.
