Bizarre Book Titles

atkins-bookshelf-booksWith an inventory of millions of books for sale by thousands of booksellers in over 50 countries, AbeBooks sells literary works with well-known titles by famous authors. But it also sells its fair share of literary works with bizarre titles by obscure authors. Accordingly, the editors of AbeBooks have collected all the bizarre book titles they encounter in a section they call AbeBook’s Weird Book Room, recognized as “the finest source of everything that’s bizarre, odd, and downright weird in books.” Here are a few notable titles:
