Titles, titles...

Our friend Jim Donahue points us to a article announcing the shortlist for the Diagram Prize for Oddest Book Title of the Year. Just as we had stopped snickering about Cooking with Pooh.

  1. My favorite title from my long-ago time at William Morrow was "The Baby Cookbook" -- which, disappointingly, was about cooking for babies.

  2. I am not impressed. Four of the titles appear to actually be the subject of non-fiction, technical books (Kowalski, Parker, Hordysynski, Yang). I will grant you that the remaining two titles are at least somewhat intriguing.

  3. The colon is always compelling.
