Not picking books by their covers



A bookshop in Sydney, Australia sells books to customers who don't know what book they're buying except for a few descriptive words written on the brown paper that the books are wrapped in.


  1. What do you think of this?
  2. Do you have a tendency to pick books based on their covers?
  3. How has this worked out for you?
  4. Do you think that if all books came this way that we'd be better at picking just the right book? Why or why not?


Choose your favourite 5 books and write 4 or 5 words to describe each one.

What if we did this for movies? Music ? Games?

Write a paragraph explaining what else do you think might benefit from this approach?
