Amazon Oddities and Weirdness: The Books

A Listmania! list by Michael A. Duvernois (Madison, WI)
(TOP 1000 REVIEWER)    (REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "Amazon started off primarily as a book-seller, so I decided to start my listing of weird Amazon items with books. The list is of items that are, in and of themselves, weird, odd, insane, or offbeat. So this isn't a listing of great works of literature that are weird. These are weird items from a glance."
