Weirdest Books Ever

Have you ever started to read a book and some pages later realized it was absolutely weird? I have! You would be surprised, but the critics created the most amusing literary award in the world, Diagram Prize. It is given annually to the authors who wrote the strangest books or the books with the strange names, which is often the same.

In 2010 the judges gave their preference a book entitled “Managing a Dental Practice the Genghis Khan Way”. Isn’t it odd? Oh, it is!
