Always Judge a Book By Its Title

The UK's Bookseller has announced the shortlist for its annual Oddest Book Title of the Year. And I have to agree with this blogger that the honorable mentions are probably the best: Squid Recruitment Dynamics and Glory Remembered: Wooden Headgear of Alaska Sea Hunters. (Though I guess the latter is really an odd subtitle, if we're splitting hairs. Glory Remembered alone could be any number of crappy military history books.)

Of the finalists, I think Cheese Problems Solved is my favorite. Though How to Write a How to Write Book does promise a certain endless progression of follow-ups that could be fun.
