"Awful Library Books"

Thanks to Brian Herzog on Swiss Army Librarian, I've just learned about the neat blog of Mary Kelly and Holly Hibner, Awful Library Books.
This site is a collection of library holdings that we find amusing and maybe questionable for libraries trying to maintain a current and relevant collection. Contained in this site are actual library holdings.

No libraries are specifically mentioned to protect our submitters who might disagree with a particular collection policy. (A good librarian would probably be able to track down the holding libraries without too much trouble anyway…)
Among the features of this blog is a Will Weed for Food page. I encourage you to explore the site and, if you wish, to submit entries.
We would love submissions. Feel free to email us any scans of covers: submit@awfullibrarybooks.net. JPGs preferred, PDFs welcome but least-preferred.
Here's the entry for December 6th: "Ham Shack, Baby." [Extra points for getting the allusion in the post title.]
