Judging a Book by Its Cover
By Jenine Lillian, MLIS Day
As we enter the darker months and the fireside (or at least, close to the space heater) book reading season commences, I thought I'd give you a sampling of wacky-titled non-fiction to warm you. As always, remember these are actual books (I couldn't make this stuff up) and are available at your local library for your enjoyment.
