Speaking of Titles...

…as I so often and obsessively am these days, here’s a list of the “best” titles as voted by GoodReads readers, complied in 2008 (thanks for the link, Keith!). Many of them mention food or are definitely in the humor category.

Top Ten:

1. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
By Seth Grahame-Smith and Jane Austen

2. Something Wicked This Way Comes
By Ray Bradbury

3. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
By Philip K. Dick

4. The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse
By Robert Rankin

5. Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation
By Lynne Truss

6. I Was Told There’d Be Cake
By Sloane Crosley

7. Are You There Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea
By Chelsea Handler

8. Stop Dressing Your Six-Year-Old Like a Skank: And Other Words of Delicate Southern Wisdom
By Celia Rivenbark

9. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
By John Berendt

10. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (Hitchhiker’s Guide, #1)
By Douglas Adams

I’m pretty sure that adding the word “river” to any of those would work:

Stop Dressing Your Six-Year-Old Like a RIVER Skank
I Was Told There’d be Cake at the RIVER

Anyway, read the rest here.
