Yay! I wish you guys worked at my neighborhood Goodwill!

How about Geek Love (a truly demented account of a family of sideshow freaks) in the self help/relationships shelf?

@boomerang,

Ken Kesey's novel about the timber industry, etc. Sometimes a Great Notion on the Hobbies/Sewing shelf.

(Based on the definition of notion as a small sewing item like button, trim or needles.)

@tsarstepan,
I like to sew (even though I'm not very good at it) so I spend some time in the notions department.

Chuck Palahnuik's Lullaby in the parenting section.

Lullaby is about babies who die after hearing a certain song/poem. This book features one of my very favorite fictional characters - the I-84 Jesus/The Roadkill Messiah who restores dead animals to life.

@tsarstepan,
Under the Dome by Stephen King, a heart-wrenching tale of the survivors of Hurricane Katrina?

@tsarstepan,
Sorry, sorry.

Seriously though, it is one of the most fascinating books I've ever read. The subtitle is The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers so I don't think it will me misshelved and bite the unsuspecting.

I love Mary Roach's books.

@boomerang,
Ghost World, the graphic novel by Daniel Clowes would be stacked in with the horror books despite the lack of ghosts, villains, and death of any kind. Unless you still believe that girls have cooties and the book's protagonist is a teenage girl.
