Book Lovers Slam DIY Trend Where People Paint & Varnish Novels To Make A Fashion Statement


Books have always been my solace, even more so during the lockdown period when we’re all stuck at home. Having said that, we have seen really bizarre things done to books during the pandemic.

Needless to say, most people on Twitter were left completely vexed with the viral hack. Here are some of the reactions:-
