A creepy cover with hilarious contents

The McSweeney's Joke Book of Book Jokes

Another review for good ol' Pajiba is up - this time on The McSweeney's Joke Book of Book Jokes.

I wasn't expecting to enjoy this one as much as I did - but there are a few pieces I revisted more than once, and each new read elicited genuine laughter. It was well worth the cost of purchase. Click here to read my review.

In a nutshell: While not every one is a winner, I have to say The McSweeney's Joke Book of Book Jokes is pretty damn good overall. But damn the cover creeps me out.

Bibliolatry Scale: 5 out of 6 stars

HA! I quickly glanced at the screen without really reading it, and thought, 'That's TWO reviews for this same book in two days! Odd.' But they were both you.

Hilarious review, and the book is on my wishlist.
