AbeBooks: Top 100 Most Searched-For Books of 2014

SEX by Madonna, 1992

Easily one of my favorite moments of the literary year is the unveiling of BookFinder.com’s list of the top 100 most searched for out-of-print books, and the list is in for 2014.

The biggest news of the year is the ousting of Madonna’s Sex, which has enjoyed lounging lasciviously around in the #1 spot since 2010, enjoying the view. But no matter how much Madonna might like to be on top, the winds of change blew Sex down to #3 this year. So what two titles were bold and daring enough to take down the queen?

Ben and Jerry’s needs to put a skull and crossbones on their fro yo so you can easily tell that’s what you’re grabbing when you’re in a hurry! It’s like thinking you’re taking Mario Lopez home from the bar, and realizing too late you’re actually in bed with Screech.

Postal Envy

The mail lady just knocked on the door with a package for MG. I answered the door shirtless, in a black apron that hung lower than my shorts underneath, covered in flour and holding a giant rolling pin in one hand…

“Oh, are you cooking?” she asked innocently.
“Well… in a way” I answered, and smiled big.

She didn’t think it was funny.
