Top 10 Strangest Books Ever Written

There are some pretty weird books out there. This list is proof of that.
The Top Ten
1 Hellbent for Cooking: The Heavy Metal Cookbook - Annick Giroux Hellbent for Cooking: The Heavy Metal Cookbook - Annick Giroux Product Image

Even if you like metal, there are things in this book that are just too bizarre for words.

But this book is pretty cool!

Great book, tasty dishes!

2 Codex Seraphinianus - Luigi Serafini Codex Seraphinianus - Luigi Serafini Product Image

This is truly the strangest book ever. No competition. It is weird in all senses, and I just think the heavy metal cookbook was voted to number one just because it's about metal. Don't judge a book by its cover, people.

The heavy metal cookbook may be weird, but this book is even weirder. It should be number 1.

I wish I could buy this just to see how bizarre it is.

This needs to be number 1.
