Street Boners

The ostentatiously titled Street Boners is actually a picture book of NYC hipster fashion that’s going on sale in just 2 days. Written my magazine maven and fashion critic Gavin McGinness, this edition is sure to contain multiple fashion fails, as well as wins.

Caffeine Killed My Family: Best Free Cure since Jesus Christ Himself

I was trolling Amazon for caffeine pills earlier today, when I stumbled upon this gem of a title. While I in no way intend to make light of anyone suffering from Huntington’s disease, which it seems like this book is partly about (or any other illness for that matter), anyone who zealously praises Jesus Christ [...]

How to Good-bye Depression: If You Constrict Anus 100 Times Everyday. Malarkey? or Effective Way?

Most people perform pelvic floor exercises to avert prolapse, or to experience mindblowingly powerful orgasms. In case you are in no imminent danger of either, you now have a perfectly valid reason to join the Kegel Revolution. I recommend performing pelvic floor muscle exercise while browsing this website.

Stupid White Men: …And Other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation!

I vowed to myself that Bookfail would be an equal opportunity review site, and this is the answer to my earlier post about Bill O’Reilly’s The O’rielly Factor for Kids. Apparently, Mr. Moore doesn’t think that racism, sexism, or the condascending pandering inherent in the title are part of the problem. Naturally, one of the [...]

I’m Barack, Not Borat!

I’m Barack, Not Borat!

Some say to not judge a book by its cover, but in the case of I’m Barack, Not Borat! there is hardly anything else to judge it by. Yes, the book is completely filled with blank pages, and its only conceivable uses are as a paper weight or a coffee table decoration piece. You could [...]

Identity Crisis Fail

Identity Crisis Fail

Two books. One author. Two diametrically opposed titles. Leonard Nimoy wrote I Am Not Spock in 1979 as an in depth look at the starring role that defined his career, as well as a broader perspective on the rest of his life. 1996 brought more of the same, but I guess Still Not Spock just [...]

Never Threaten to Eat Your Co-Workers

Here’s another example of a sassy, saucy book with an ironic title, akin to How to Raise Your IQ by Eating Gifted Children. If only more authors were as adroit and maverick as the men who penned the two aforementioned works. Submitted by Ramiro C.

Dick: A User’s Guide

What’s with women these days? First, they want to pee standing up now. Now they are authoring manuals for male genitalia? I wonder if these women find diamonds in the ruff with this user guide. Via: OneMinuteBookReviews

Satan Burger (NSFW)

I don’t know what this book is about, but it’s called Satan Burger, and it has a picture of a 1 girl 1 plate (NSFW) about to happen, so that’s good enough to be included in Bookfail. Additional reading: The Baby Jesus Butt Plug

How to Raise Your I.Q. by Eating Gifted Children

Thanks to Failblog.org for inspiring this first post, as well as galvanizing my desire me to make this website.  Don’t worry, I have quite a list to work from, so there will be plenty more book fails to come.
