A real-life photographic assignment

We've been asked, as an English department, to provide a couple of photos 'summing up what we do'. So I'm going to have a wander round The Dark Place tomorrow with a bag of books and my D7000 looking for good ideas.

Do you have any suggestions? I'll be doing some of book piles - what should go in there? What books go with particular situations? This is where ideally I'd need an assistant. Someone to be photographed reading Tamara Drewe at a rural bus stop, or the opening chapter of The Box of Delights on a train. Perhaps a seedy academic leafing through Lolita in a playground. The Go-Between in a fairground. Lucky Jim in the staff room.

Quick: suggestions please!
