A Book By Any Other Name…

by Joseph M

When you see a book at the library or bookstore and want to know more about it, do you ever wish you could get beyond the vague summaries and overenthusiastic blurbs on the cover jacket and find out what the story is *really* about? If so, Better Book Titles may be right up your alley. Here’s a description from the website: This blog is for people who do not have thousands of hours to read book reviews or blurbs or first sentences. I will cut through all the cryptic crap, and give you the meat of the story in one condensed image. Now you can read the greatest literary works of all time in mere seconds!

Featured books include classics, modern best-sellers, and children’s books. While I would take issue with a few of the proposed title revisions, I found the majority of entries to be clever and amusing, and hopefully you will too!
