I see a hundred or so requests for books and other materials every day in my work, and I decided to collect some of the funnier/stranger titles to amuse my co-workers.

Whips & Kisses

Hanky Panky Crazy Quilts

Library: An Unquiet History

If You Don't Have Big Breasts, Put Ribbons On Your Pigtails

The Egg Of Christopher Columbus

The Sex Life Of The Foot And Shoe

Workteams And The Wizard Of Oz
