In this crazy, topsy-turvy world in which everything that we could possibly ever want to learn about is delivered right into our iTelephones, libraries may seem a bit outmoded. However, they still have a lot to offer young people hungry for knowledge. Just take a stroll through your local library's aisles, and you're sure to find a few hidden literary treasures.


For example, did you know that the best way for you to harness your inner womanliness is to defer all judgement to the penis-havers in your life? Seems counterintuitive, but that's what you'll learn if you check out Always Ask a Man: The Key to Femininity by Arlene Dahl. Plus, you'll get the scoop on Sophia Loren's 7-day diet, which I'm assuming she learned about from Marcello Mastroianni.

Have you always been curious about the mail correspondences of superstar actor Burt Reynolds, while also harboring a healthy curiosity about the curvature of his hind quarters? Of course you have! Hasn't everybody? That's why it's amazing that Burt Reynolds Hotline: The Letters I Get…and Write! isn't still in print today. Something truly is wrong with the publishing industry.
