If you’ve not heard of Abe Books, you might want to check them out. They sell books: textbooks, rare books, all kinds of books.
Today, just for fun, I thought I’d introduce you to their Weird Book Room. The books there are bizarre. In other words, weird.
This week’s Weird Book of the Week is:
The Teach Your Chicken to Fly Training Manual by Trevor Weekes.
Not interested in chickens? How about tattoos? Then try:
Tattooed Mountain Women and Spoon Boxes of Daghestan by Robert Chenciner, Gabib Ismailov, Magomedkhan Magomedkhanov, and Alex Binnie.
Or how about this one, first published in 1951:
Nudism in Modern Life: The New Gymnosophy by Maurice Parmelee.
This one might just be the winner of the longest title:
Impeccable Birdfeeding: How to Discourage Scuffling, Hull-Dropping, Seed-Throwing, Unmentionable Nuisances and Vulgar Chatter at Your Birdfeeder by Bill Adler Jr.
I know some of you will want to get:
50 Ways to Use Feminine Hygiene Products in a Manly Manner by B. Koz.
Perhaps you could use:
The Bible Cure for Irritable Bowel Syndrome by Don Colbert.
But, if that doesn’t work, you may want:
Toilet Paper Origami by Linda Wright.
Abe Books has got lots of weird books. And you can always suggest ones you think they’re missing. What’s the strangest book you’ve ever read?
