Currently seeking a book icon

I've decided to start blogging whatever books I've just finished, the way desert_vixen and kittikattie do. I'm presently looking for a book icon. I have this button that shows a Day of the Dead skeleton reading a volume of Zapata, but haven't found it as a picture online yet.

So recently I've finished:

Solomon, Robert. "Living with Nietzsche: What the Great 'Immoralist' Has to Teach Us". Solomon posits that Nietzsche's shock-jock tactic was meant to make us examine why we live the way we do. It isn't so much that Nietzsche thought morals were bad per se, he goes on, as that living according to "thou shalt not" does is not conducive to life in its richness and that morality lived like that can keep a good person from becoming a great one.

Ratzinger, Joseph. "Jesus of Nazareth". Benedict XVI wrote this in his off-hours as Pope and it shows. I agree with cinchntouch, this is nothing special. I don't think it's as bad as Cinch does, I can just tell that Benedict can do way better than this. It was a nice companion to my reading through Matthew and what I've done so far of John (I'm re-reading John on my own) but I didn't feel compelled to write down anything out of it to save for future reference..

EDIT: Made myself one!

Is this a painting from Robert W. Chambers' "The King in Yellow"?

I had a look at the painting via the link you sent. It does seem to have a tenuous connection to "The King in Yellow". In my opinion, despite the gruesome appearance of The Bearer, it's a fantastically beautiful painting. The use of light is just glorious.
