Re: [BKARTS] Sayings or proverbs with books?



Two other common phrases in English are:

To "throw the book" at someone = to vigorously prosecute
To "go by the book" = to follow rules and regulations strictly

Talking about books on books, what expressions, sayings or proverbs are
there that contain or refer to books?

Like, in German, there's "a book with seven seals" for something or someone
you don't understand, or "like an open book" for someone who doesn't manage
to hide anything.

Cheers,
Astrid
