Awfullibrarybooks.wordpress.com is a collection of the worst library holdings. The items featured here are so old, obsolete, awful or just plain stupid that we are horrified that people might be actually checking these items out and depending on the information.”

Recent highlights from their collection include:

Looking through the list of these old books, and reading the descriptions and some of the comments, is a fun way to spend some time.
