Cataloging in Publication (CIP) Block

Most librarians won’t consider buying a book that doesn’t have a CIP block on the copyright page. I just created CIP blocks for Hell Holes: What Lurks Below and Hell Holes: Demons on the Dalton. What a pain in the butt. Now I understand why a lot of indie authors pay someone to generate them. This is what one looks like:
