it seems dishonest, somehow

I'm reading one of neeuqdrazil's non-fiction cultural studies books right now (After by the Flesh, the Culturasl Politics of Body Modification). It's an interesting book about a topic I'm interested in. The cover, though, is a bit risque (a tatooed woman wearing a bikini style top that is held on, not with straps, but hooks through the skin). So, to prevent people from thinking I am reading porn (which I nearly got into trouble for when I was reading Kushiel's Dart a couple years ago), I have put a white paper cover on the book.

I'm not sure if this is just going to convince people that I am, in fact, reading porn, or what. But it seems dishonest that I am covering up what I'm reading.

(caffeine is destroying my ability to focus on work, and making me more likely to post weird things. But I'm awake!)
