Sticky book covers?

Okay, so when I was in school (at least a century ago - lol) you could buy book covers that were sticky. You just cut them to the size of your book and stick them on. They were really the only thing that worked for soft cover books... Does anyone know where I could find them now? I haven't been able to find them anywhere and I have some soft cover books that need covers for... I don't mind reading them in public, but the covers tend to get a second look from some and they make my DH uncomfortable...

  • Would contact paper work? The kind by Rubbermaid that's made to line shelves?

  • We just used contact paper when I was a kid.  I remember in high school we had to cover all our religion books with contact paper.  So my Bible and all my religious texts had Snoopy all over them, lol.

  • That's what I'm looking to cover - religious books. The book covers I'm talking about were pretty much contact paper, just not as sticky as the stuff that you line shelves with and they had better designs... But where can I get them?

  • Maybe they stopped making them bc I don't think the schools liked them. They ruined the real covers or something.

  • Walmart, Target? Is there a college near you? I know when I went they sold them in the bookstore at college.
