Books that make you go… WTF!?

Published March 15, 2014 by Shadow Girl

From orgasms to official documents, with a little help from the internet – you can fake just about anything these days. Photo-Shopped covers of popular and classic books can be hilarious. I’ve had numerous posts dedicated to screwing with books, and have often wished that the parodies were real things.

If BREAKING BAD was a Little Golden children's book.

This time – the books posted are the real deal.
This time – I wish a few were just parodies!

  • Hello,

    We are a not-for-profit educational organization founded by Mortimer Adler and we have recently made an exciting discovery—three years after writing the wonderfully expanded third edition of How to Read a Book, Mortimer Adler and Charles Van Doren made a series of thirteen 14-minute videos—lively discussing the art of reading. The videos were produced by Encyclopaedia Britannica. For reasons unknown, sometime after their original publication, these videos were lost.

    Three hours with Mortimer Adler and Charles Van Doren, lively discussing the art of reading, on one DVD. A must for all readers, libraries and classroom teaching the art of reading.

    I cannot exaggerate how instructive these programs are—we are so sure that you will agree, if you are not completely satisfied, we will refund your donation.

    Please go here to see a clip and learn more:

    Thank you,

    Max Weismann, Co-founder with Dr. Adler

    • Wouldn’t be the same Charles Van Doren that was in the quiz show scandal, would it? 🙂
      I normally wouldn’t approve a comment like this, an advert, but the videos sound neat, and since I did poke a little fun at the title… it’s the least I can do!
      I’ll see if I can find a clip to share.
