Awful Library Books

Public librarians in Michigan, Mary Kelly and Holly Hibner, have been holding the book fort for over a decade and know a thing or two about awful library books. So much so that they’ve set up a site of actual library holdings — from their travels, snooping in library catalogs and hearing from library staff all over the world — that are somewhat questionable.

Libraries rock. It also says a lot about the super random world of published books. If anyone wants to gift us Diet, Crime and Delinquency with that classic cover of a wayward teen stabbing donuts in cold blood, we will love you for life.
