    A random question, prompted by Jeff's awesome list: Does anyone know what the symbols on the spines of some GM paperbacks mean? (They are near the top, underneath the catalog number.) Looking at the shelf in front of me, for example, I see a red heart on #380, a black X on
    #409, a black box on #448, a black hourglass on #522, a black circle on #500, a green club on #224, etc. etc., but the majority of them do not have these markings.
