Book Fail

I stumbled upon this website called Awful Library Books. It's run by two librarians Mary and Holly. The site contains an amusing collection of public library holdings that are too ancient to be useful for modern readers. The concept is to showcase (and poke fun at) how irrelevant some of the library collections have become and how these books are in a dire need to be "weeded".

Some of the titles are awfully funny. On the first page, you can see scanned book covers that are titled "Talking to Children about Nuclear Wars", "Goat Husbandry", "Cyborg: Evelution of Superman", "How to Make Beautiful Food in Mold" and etc. I couldn't help bursting out laughing while checking out some of these titles.

It's definitely a great website that's worth stopping by to have a few chuckles. Sort of like a Fail blog for books.
