Hiatus is the perfect time to get a little silly, so Clarissa over at TVOvermind.com and I decided to do just that! We came up with 20 books that Sam or Dean Winchester might find in the Batcave library.To see the full list, head over to TVOvermind and check out the slideshow and Clarissa's (@clarissa373) excellent explanation of where the idea for these books came from. They were a lot of fun to put together, and much laughter was involved on our parts.
But the WFB has an EXCLUSIVE back cover to one of the books, Dane Blinhester's autobiography. The reviews are...interesting.
What books do YOU hope Sam and Dean find in the library?
Thank you so much for this Ardeospina and Clarissa. Just the thing for a cold, Supernatural-le ss night in March hiatus :)

I had been thinking of one similar to the latter, but was going to phrase it something like 'Road Trip Boredom: How to Annoy your Brother in 3 Easy Steps'. I like how you went for the positive angle though!
magichappening- Loved yours, too, especially the Fifty Thousand Shades of Grey one!
Life Beyond Plaid: A Sartorial Intervention
Wow. This article has certainly been a gateway one for me. From here I can see it's a slippery slope to Monty Python- level parody.
I had trouble getting down my morning tea reading these! Hilarious!
