Welcome to AbeBooks' Weird Book Room - heralded by the New York Times, Canada's Globe and Mail, The Times of London, and The Guardian (UK) as the finest source of everything that's bizarre, odd and downright weird in books. Everyone's talking about it - author Neil Gaiman is even tweeting about it, posting a link and suggesting his followers: "Go to this link and gaze on the titles and be made happy. Trust me. It'll work".

With new titles added periodically - including five recently-added, delightfully odd books about tractors - we have an excellent selection of crazy and strange titles for sale by our booksellers, about every oddball aspect of life you could possibly imagine (and a few things you couldn't).

We invite you to not only revel in our collection of literary oddities but to also send us your suggestions.

Thanks to everyone who has submitted weird books!
