The Book Card Meaning

This book is unopened. It indicates information, knowledge, or secrets that have yet to be learned. I like to think of the book like a book on our nightstands - we know a story, information, or secrets are there but we haven't yet accessed this knowledge. 

In some contexts, it can represent learning, schooling, writing, or a physical book.
