    What's your favorite book title?

    Though I will usually read book descriptions and even sometimes reviews, especially if I'm buying a book online, sometimes the title alone will make me buy the book. My favorite book title of all time is The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse by Robert Rankin. I bought it for the title and I loved the book. Do you have a favorite book title? If you bought the book because of the title, did it live up to it's name?

      I agree. The HP books are awesome, and I love their individual titles!

    The first Lewis Grizzard book I ever read was because of the title. "Don't bend over in the garden Granny, You know them taters got eyes". Loved it.

      Ah Lewis Grizzard! I'd never heard of him until a few years ago when I was spending time at my dad's house. He had some of Grizzard's books, and I read them all. That guy was great!

    I have three contenders and I can't choose between them, so I'll state them all:

    'At Swim Two Birds' by Flann O'Brien.

    It's a fabulous (literally) piece of metafiction that intertwines three different stories in a beautiful system of self-exploratory literary conceits. A wonderful tapestry of words and ideas. Great fun for the untangled mind.

    'The Island of The Day Before' by Umberto Eco.

    One of my favorite books ever, this is an epic philosophical adventure that romps through history, science and religion, powered by Eco's linguistic acuity and masterful storytelling. It is pure literary beauty without fault. I read it in the original Italian and then in English, but he always gets translated well.

    'If Upon A Winter's Night A Traveller...' by Italo Calvino.

    Another metafiction and a superb example, elegantly written and wittily composed. It's short, compact, atmospheric and humorous, as is all his work.
