i know where it came from: a bubble in a moment

Last week The Man and I woke up to find that during the night someone had placed this bizarre selection of books on our porch:

The titles included Death Reach, The Witch of Blackbird Pond, a tourist's guide to "Scenic Oregon," John Saul's The Darkness, a Canadian book on basic karate techniques, and the beloved classic White Fang. Even though waking up to a few books on one's porch probably isn't frightening by most peoples' standards, it did kind of weird us out. Once we got over that, we put our considerable forensic investigatory skills to work and came up with several half-cocked theories. Before I tell you what they were, I invite you to use the comments section and share your own insight into this baffling phenomenon.

I think whoever put the books there is trying to tell you that you guys are witches who should learn karate (Canadian style), then explore the forests and coasts of Oregon before heading north to join a pack of wolves. Oh, and you should read "The Darkness" along the way.

Thank you, Frank! I knew I could count on you.

I'm thinking they are a random selection of printed pages, picked up at a library discard sale before being disposed of in disgust on the porch of some suspicious book-learnin' types. Leaving books on your porch is the new flaming poopsack.
