Weird Titles

Here is a list of the weirdest book titles that have come into the store in February:

- The Beggar’s Handbook, A Guide to Successful Panhandling by P. Packet

- Nazis In The Woodpile by Egon Glesinger

- You May Know them As Sea Urchins, Ma’am by Ray Guy

- The Mafia Of A Sicilian Village, A Study In Violent Peasant Entrepreneurs" by Anton Blok

- Surviving in Prison by Harold Long

- Old Wives For New by Graham Phillips

- The Myth Of Ability by John Mighton

- You Die Next, Jill Baby! by Kirby Carr

- Old Age, It’s Cause And Prevention by Sanford Bennett

Anyone have weird titles of their own to share?


  1. In Kirby Carr's defense, Jill had it coming.

  2. The Esotericism of the Popol Vuh by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky.

  3. Interesting list. :-)
    However, I am compelled to point out that Sandford Bennett's title actually must be, "Old Age, ITS Cause And Prevention."
    Sorry, but old teachers never retire/die -- they forever zoom in on errors in print. They can't help it.

  4. THE VIAVI GYNECOLOGICAL PLATES Designed to Educate Mothers And Daughters Concerning Diseases of the Uterine Organs by Hartland Law and Herbert E Law. Published by The Viavo Co. in 1891.
