Suggestive, Funny, or Plain Inappropriate Book Titles

Can You Say That in the Library?

Every once and a while a title comes across the desk that makes us wonder, “can we put that on the shelves?” Even though, secretly, we feel all bad-ass that we ordered the item. I got a big kick out of these books, and decided to start compiling a list to share with librarians and blog readers alike. I’d like to note here that it was tons of fun looking up dirty words in the library catalog and you can try this at home.

All of these books were, at one time, here on the shelves at WFPL. One or two have gone missing, either because someone didn’t want to be seen checking it out, or because of unsolicited censoring (don’t get me started), but most, like I said, are here. So feel free to check a few of them out, and I promise, we won’t judge (we won’t have time, we’ll be reading them too).
