Weird books

Wonderfully weird books, odd books, bizarre books and more
A selection of weird books to tickle your funny bone

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. Even author Neil Gaiman tweeted 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, 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). Some of the selections are serious books, but out of context, the titles tickled our funny bones.
