Book covers and the bikinis that match them

Bikinis have finally met their match: Matchbook.nu has cleverly juxtaposed swimsuits in online stores with book covers that look just like them. Not intentionally. I especially like that each comparison includes the first line of the book. My favorite is the example above, featuring David Foster Wallace‘s Infinite Jest, which has been the Bane to this Batman. The first sentence of Infinite Jest?

I am seated in an office, surrounded by heads and bodies.

Now that is an opening line.

Also making a highly topical appearance — with a bit of foreshadowing — the recently disgraced author Jonah Lehrer and his discredited book Imagine. It was paired with a bikini from Victoria’s Secret.
