THE 20 BEST BOOK TITLES, PROBABLY EVER

If you're ever wondering how authors choose their titles...maybe sometimes they shouldn't. (All titles found in Bizarre Books by Russell Ash & Brian Lake.)
  1. Misogyny Over the Week-end by Ronald McNair Scott
    But only the weekend, surely.
  2. Pamela Pounce: A Tale of Tempestuous Petticoats by Agnes and Egerton Castle

  3. Fishes I Have Known by Arthur Henry Beavan
    Also the author of "Birds I Have Known." It seems Mr.Beavan was indiscriminate in his friendships.

    As this was published in 1936, I assume they were suffering from the Great Depression too.
