I read a lot, I mean a ton, but there are just some books out there that are so messed up, so weird and so strange that I had to write them all down.

If you are looking for something weird, if you are looking for something twisty, this list of books is it.

1. Flatland - a Romance of Many Dimensions by Edwin a. Abbott

Flatland - a Romance of Many Dimensions by Edwin a. Abbott

Get it at amazon.com

This book is only about 80-pages and it is so strange!

It was written by an obscure English clergyman and it really dives deep into the adventures of A.

Square, who lives in a two-dimensional world and who is lifted up to space.

Such a great and – weird read!

2. Labyrinths - Selected Stories and Other Writings by Jorge Luis Borges

Each story in this book really has a way of lodging itself right into your brain and staying there forever.

I still find myself flipping through the pages of this particular book.

I love, love it.

3. The Penguin Dictionary of Curious and Interesting Numbers by David Wells

The Penguin Dictionary of Curious and Interesting Numbers by David Wells

Get it at amazon.com

This book really is genius.

It's a dictionary of numbers – not words.

It's only a reference book, but it's interesting right?

4. The Animal Family by Randall Jarrell

The Animal Family by Randall Jarrell

Get it at amazon.com

If you read the Table of Contents in this book, it will tell you the story in a nutshell: a hunter, a mermaid, a baby, a bear, a lynx and a boy.

Each member of the family is constructed in just the right way and you can really see the magic in this book.

5. Robots Have No Tails by Henry Kuttner

Robots Have No Tails by Henry Kuttner

Get it at amazon.com

This is actually a collection of stories all about a genius named Gallagher who can invent all kinds of amazing machines, but only when he is seriously drunk off of his ass.2

When he wakes up from his drunkenness?

He can't remember why or how he invented the machines.

SUCH a great book!

The Well at the World's End by William Morris
