Ave you heard of the Oddest Book Title of the Year Awards?

According to The Telegraph, “The award, now in its 35th year, is aimed at giving much-needed publicity to obscure titles and the ‘undervalued art’ of writing them…Previous winners include Greek Rural Postmen and Their Cancellation Numbers, How to Avoid Huge Ships, Living with Crazy Buttocks and, most recently, Cooking with Poo.

The Diagram Prize, for the bizarre and strange (although the heading states “strangle”) shortlist here…

Hope you get a giggle!

  1. Well, I’ve had people ask me if there’s a typo in the title of my new book, THE RIGHT WRONG MAN. But mabye that’s not as weird as The Dog Asked Me to Type a Memo (I just made that up, but that would be a cool title – and a cool book!). Thanks for the fun post. Love the book graphic.

  2. Remember when THE OLDEST LIVING CIVIL WAR WIDOW TELLS ALL was published? There were all kinds of debates about title lengths.
    I love this post, Roxie–it doesn’t challenge the length as much as the…well, unusualness.

  3. This is funny stuff Roxie. There’s a couple I’ve read over the years that made me raise my eyebrows: “How to defeat your own clone” & “What to say when you talk to yourself” … both were entertaining reading… I hope when I get published someday, I’ll be able to come up with a title that isn’t … so…. umm… strange. LOL I hope you have a great Sunday!
