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?

Hah, Salads of America! And they always look worse than Dean's food and Deans food looks terrible!

LOL magichappening, yours are so funny too!!

I esp. like Motels of America - The Odd, The Weird and The Fugly and An Idiot's Guide to Personal Space by Dane Blinhester

These are awesome. Thanks for posting. Love #magichappening 's additions as well. However I would say it was the trusty vampire who guided Dane in Purgatory.

Brilliant! I particularly love Bend Your Knees, Who moved my EMF meter? and How to Spend 8 Hours..

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!
PaintedWolf
# PaintedWolf 2013-03-07 08:26
Thanks magichappening and Karen!
magichappening- Loved yours, too, especially the Fifty Thousand Shades of Grey one!

Thanks PaintedWolf! Oh, I just thought of another 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.

# eilf 2013-03-07 12:00
'Who moved my EMF meter?...' is my favorite so far :D

I'm loving all of the book titles you guys are sharing here! Kate and I had a huge ball coming up with the 20 original ones, but we literally could have gone on forever.

Now we just have to get the props department to do up a few mock-ups and actually hide these in the MoL library..... ;)
magichappening
# magichappening 2013-03-07 15:02
Thanks for starting us off, Clarissa! How much fun would it be if the props department actually did that :)
PaintedWolf
# PaintedWolf 2013-03-08 06:09
Maybe someone should send them a card or something... ;-)
Ardeospina
# Ardeospina 2013-03-10 00:05
This is true. We literally could have gone on forever. It's such a fun concept!

And yes, props department, let's have some of these books, please!
