Some of the titles listed in this book are absolutely hilarious. There are also some really funny author/title combinations that will crack you up, such as Oh! Sex Education! by Mary Breasted or Your Teeth by John Chipping. At the end there is a list of strange author names (seriously, why would you call your child 'semen'?) that will have you shaking your head at the cruelty of parents.

I am making it my life challenge to obtain and release as many of these books as possible. This book is definitely worth reading and I would recommend purchasing a copy keep on your coffee table and show off to guests.

Chuckled my way through it, couldn't resist reading some of the titles to my family.

I have read one of the books mentioned in here, Coprology, which was also very entertaining.

This one was pounced on simultaneously by meganh and myself as soon as it hit the table at meetup today. Luckily we both maintained our dignity - and the Christmas spirit - and I wrestled it gently from her.... Hope you make a speedy recovery, megan! ;) Onto the mighty Mt TBR with this one!
