Awful Library Books – The Best of 2012

2012 is coming to a close, and of course we are required by the Internet to produce a “best of” list.  Since we both have our own favorites, there is usually some debate on what should be considered the best.  So after some serious negotiations (a few emails and insults), here is what we have. Click on the titles to see the original post, and by all means don’t miss the comments! They are the best part.

Everyone enjoy peace, love and stable library funding for 2013!

  • Didn’t we have any macrame books this year? They’re usually good for a best-of spot.

    But the Savage Donut Tantrum was definitely a good choice!

  • I’ll agree with most of those you posted (All?), but will say that I had forgotten some of those that you posted so long ago. “Marriage Insurance” especially.

  • That “Italian without words” book would be a perfect gift for my husband.
