The nominees are:

"I was Tortured by the Pygmy Love Queen" recounts the tale of a fictional U.S. World War Two fighter pilot who is captured by jungle pygmies led by a sadistic woman. This book is always on my coffee table!

"How to Write a How to Write Book"

"Cheese Problems Solved" - provides responses to over 200 of the most frequently asked questions about cheese and the cheese-making process Ohhhh, this sounds like a real page turner! A compelling read!

"People who Mattered in Southend and Beyond: From King Canute to Dr. Feelgood"

"If You Want Closure in Your Relationship, Start With Your Legs" - a thought-provoking guide for every woman who’s involved in an intimate relationship with a man.

"Are Women Human? And other International Dialogues." - A critique of the transnational status quo that also envisions the transforming possibilities of human rights, this bracing book makes us look as never before at an ongoing war too long undeclared.

This one did not make the list unfortunately: "Drawing and Painting the Undead"

Dammit! I'm heading for Amazon right now!
Much as I giggled at the others, it was "Cheese Problems Solved" that had me laughing out loud.

The oddest one on my bookshelves has to be "On Sled And Horseback To Outcast Siberian Lepers"; the true story of a mad Englishwoman in 1892, who fought off wolves and bandits to get a paltry cartload of supplies to some remote leper colony she'd heard about.
As a kid I loved those weird Victorian explorers' books so I have quite an odd collection.

I have several books about children being captured and raised by American Indians. For some reason, this fascinated me in high school....
