Judging a Book by Its Cover
By Jenine Lillian, MLIS Day
While working for local libraries, I noticed an inordinate amount of ridiculously titled books, started jotting them down and eventually compiling a list for staff room enjoyment. The tradition continues now that I’m in the iSchool and in every issue of the Silverfish you’ll find more fun to add to your reading lists. For those of you who are just beginning the program, I decided this list should have a few titles that will prepare you for the adjustment to grad school, your coursework, pub nights and antelope sightings—enjoy!

Clean Your Clothes with Cheez Whiz and hundreds of offbeat uses for dozens more brand-name products (by the author of “Polish Your Furniture with Panty Hose.”)
