Welcome to another great installment of
MONDAY MYSTERY - ONLINE EDITION!!

We have a fun photo challenge for today's #MondayMystery! And it should be fairly quick, too, because the whole point is that it doesn't have to be good!
We can't wait to see what you come up with!

GREAT BOOK! BAD COSTUME!

Using only things laying around your house, make a costume that goes with a good book. Then pose with the book and share the picture with us!

If you need inspiration, eBooks totally count, too!

(And if you're feeling camera shy, feel free to dress up a reluctantly cooperative pet, or even a stuffed animal or statue!)
