Working on an astronomy bibliography today reminded me of one of my favorite blogs: Awful library books where one can peruse the annals of books that should have been tossed long ago. That is not to say that some of the books wouldn’t be great contributions to archives cataloging the evolution of human thought, culture, and technology . This site takes contributions from all over and is, besides an important reminder to librarians who refuse to throw anything away, extremely humorous.
