Silly Stuff – Awful Library Books Never Lets Me Down

I love the site Awful Library Books.  It’s amazing some of the books that actually got published, then were forgotten and are now being found in the deepest darkest pits of local libraries or home libraries.  I am very happy people are willing to share theirs finds with the rest of us.

Today, I am simply posting covers that made me giggle.  I hope they’ll make you giggle too.  🙂

Just one more image for you.  This one is not a book cover.  It is a picture that one of my friends emailed me and I still laugh every time I see it.  I thought maybe you guys would find it amusing too!



  1. OMG, Julie!!! This post is just awful…truly awful. So why am I laughing so hard?!? hehe! smiles…

  2. Those were AWESOME! Who names a book “Manseed”?
    Thanks for giving me a good laugh first thing in the morning.

  3. Julie those are literature gems, from Beefcake and its Kens alike cover to the Gangs and… I don’t know what to say of that cover but something starting with L for sure.
    For real I don’t know which one is the worst of all of them. Thank you for the laugh.

  4. Those covers are awesome! Manseed…still laughing.

    Great little comic at the end too. *giggles*

  5. Fantastic. “I hate this game.” Bwhahahaha.

  6. I confess, I copied the cartoon and will send it to all my friends. The bookcovers are priceless. Loved Manseed and Beefcake especially. I’m not too scared by the Gangs, some how Nikes and white hose just doesn’t get my adrenaline pumping. Actually, I’d like to know what the marine truth is about sex.

  7. Lol, I love awful covers 😀 And I like the last fun one

  8. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA I love the last image you included, it finished off the post nicely! I have to check out the Awful Library Books site now…
