Better Books Titles

Friday, January 21, 2011

Have you guys seen the website Better Book Titles?
It's hilarious! It takes famous books and gives
them titles that are more fitting for the story.

A few of my favorites are their version of
Sherlock Holmes and The Very Hungry Caterpillar (top)
and Remains of the Day and Macbeth (bottom).
Sometimes you need a good book related laugh.

Too funny! I just checked out the website too. I'll have to add it to my Google Reader. Thanks for sharing.

"The Hills Have Guys" (aka Brokeback Mountain) cracked me up!

Some of those are really good! =D

I'm not too crazy about one title which totally gives away the ending, though. =S

I love that site! My favorite was The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo renamed "I've Only Read One Book This Year."

Alexandra - Bahaha, I forgot about The Hills Have Guys. That one was hilarious.

Enbrethiliel - I don't remember one that gave away the ending, but maybe I just missed it.

Nomadreader - That is too funny... and true for way too many people.

This is sooooo fun! I think I could use this for a "Fun and Games with Jenners" concept. I'll give you -- and the site -- full credit!

I bought The Remains of the Day yesterday and I'm looking forward to reading it. It will be my first Ishiguro.

Jenners - Go for it!

Brenna - Can't wait to hear what you think. It's a very quiet book, but beautifully written.
