Sometimes, Cliffs Notes just aren’t reductive enough.

Cutting straight to the lolzy core of world literature, Dan Wilbur of Better Book Titles has a massive library of alternative covers with which you can hold your own in any literary pub conversation for upward of 20 seconds.

He releases a new title every day of the week, or you can follow him on Twitter.

Above, (from the top, left to right): Charles Dickens’ Bleak House; J.D. Salinger’s The Catcher in The Rye; Dante’s Inferno; Charles Bukowski’s Factotum; George Orwell’s 1984 and Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights.

But you knew that.
