You remember a while ago we shared a good laugh at some of the weirdest book covers, don’t you? I thought it would be more fun to share a similar post but with a twist. Yes here are a few ridiculous book titles that make me reconsider the amount of time I am spending on the internet.

It is not a big secret that I obsess over books and bookish websites. I guess this is the prize for all that.

    This post is hilarious. I must say, the toilet paper origami is rather pretty, and gives you something to do while you’re in the bathroom. I am sure some long-haired dog owners could appreciate learning how to knit with the hair that is all over their house.
