The Library Books That Time Forgot

Sometimes libraries need a bit of friendly persuasion to let go of some of the outdated books on their shelves, the ones nobody borrows any more - if indeed they did in the first place.

The Guardian links a blog set up by two public spirited librarians from Detroit which provides plentiful examples of the worst books on library shelves, to encourage librarians to cull their shelves. Awful Library Books has become an unexpected hit, turning some very quirky titles, any of which reflect the way that attitudes, as a well as technology has changed.

And I'm sure Malaysian libraries can provide some equally odd titles! Let us know if you find any.
