Book dedications are a quiet moment in a book, but it doesn’t mean they aren’t important. They’re an author’s chance to take the Oscars podium, or a concert venue, or any kind of speech without the pomp and circumstance. It’s perfect for us, really.

That being said, a lot of these dedications are just plain weird. Here are some of our favorites.
