Booklicious: Take a Walk on the Weird Side

December 15, 2009


Get your bookmarkin' fingers ready, because this site is a keeper. Abebooks just launched its Weird Books Room, "a celebration of everything that's bizarre, odd and downright weird in books." The current Weird Book of the Week is A la Cart: The Secret Lives of Grocery Shoppers by Hilary Carlip. So yeah, weird.

They maintain a collection called Weird and Wonderful, the books of which will by turns bewilder, horrify and tickle you. I've posted my favorites after the jump.

The Big Book of Lesbian Horse Stories by Alisa Surkis and Monica Nolan

Gangsta Rap Coloring Book by Anthony "Aye Jay" Moreno

How to Survive a Robot Uprising by Daniel H. Wilson

The Pop-Up Book of Phobias by Gary Greenberg

Soldier Bear by Geoffrey Morgan and W.A. Lasocki
