Oddest book title

It’s Saturday afternoon and for a bit of light relief you may like this piece of useless information from the Guardian weekly. The quest is on to find the oddest book title in the last 30 years.  Here are some of my personal favourites, but if you want to look at the article and the complete list then check this out.

  • Proceedings of the Second International Workshop on Nude Mice
  • The Book of Marmalade: Its Antecedents, Its History and Its Role in the World Today
  • Oral Sadism and the Vegetarian Personality
  • How to Shit in the Woods: An Environmentally Sound Approach to a Lost Art
  • How to Avoid Huge Ships
  • American Bottom Archaeology
  • Highlights in the History of Concrete
  • Reusing Old Graves
  • Butterworths Corporate Manslaughter Service
  • The Stray Shopping Carts of Eastern North America: A Guide to Field Identification

    Hey Richard,
    Back in sunny Dunedin, lots of people reading while they flew on my flight!
    Thanks for getting in touch, made me feel less abandoned in my reading quest.
    Christchurch Library rocks!

    I am ashamed to say that when 5pm rolled around on Saturday I realised I had forgotten – unforgiveable. I did intend to be there!! 😦
