One nifty little tome of but 182 pages.
Librarians and Booksellers will especially like this one as we inevitably find weird stuff between the pages of books.
I myself have found, among other strange and disgusting things: an allegedly unused (please, God, let it be unused!!!) panty-liner,
bits of toilet paper/ Kleenex/ paper towel, and a metal measuring spoon which was surreptitiously shoved down the spine of a cookery book by what I hope was a child who knew no better.
Michael Popek has discovered a plethora of way more interesting and sanitary items and created this book for our entertainment.
Please do not mark your place in it with anything that belongs in a bathroom trash can. Thank you.
