Paper Bag Book Covers

I ran across this a couple weeks ago and it brought back a flood of back to school memories:

Getting brand new books- Spelling and English (my favorites), Math (yuck) and History (I tried hard to enjoy it, but sometimes I was bored).  Taking my books home on the first day to carefully cover them with paper grocery sacks.  And then the labeling.  If I did not perfectly write the subject of the book on the cover, I had to start all over again.  I know, OCD, but it would bother me.  Later I would cover it with hearts, flowers, my friend's names and the always mysterious, "I Love ???"

What is a favorite Back-to-School memory of yours?
