Awful Library Books – My New Favorite Website

Always read the subhead.

There’s a new highly-specific blog in town and it’s called Awful Library Books, where two public librarians from Michigan go through the stacks to find the worst titles/covers/general content they can in an effort to showcase some cool books that may have been overlooked, or simply force public libraries to be more current.

My favorite book this week: Jewish Pirates of the Caribbean (subhead: How a Generation of Swashbuckling Jews Carved Out an Empire in the New World in their Quest for Treasure, Religious Freedom and Revenge). OhmygodIloveitsomuch.
