From the Dark Corners of the Library

coverWhere’s Arthur’s Gerbil?; A Pictorial Book of Tongue Coating; The Fangs of Suet Pudding: all real books apparently. Inspired by Bizarre Books: A Compendium of Classic Oddities, a new book collecting history’s odd, obscure, and weird volumes, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Book Page is soliciting strange book titles from readers. The first entry might be the best: Cooking with Pooh, and why doesn’t it surprise me that this one has become an Amazon collectors’ item, with the cheapest copy on offer now going for the low, low price of $92.80.

    Interesting book. 360 Degrees of Reading is another book that brings to light some overlooked, as well as some well-known, literature. I never would have found 'Alfred and Guinevere', 'Narrative of My Captivity Among the Sioux Indians' and 'My Journey to Lhasa' without it.
