Bookish Humor: “Better Book Titles”

Comedian Dan Wilbur takes the art of writing plot summaries to a new level: he’s dreamed up some sarcastic alternative titles to Classics and Bestsellers You Meant to Read But Somehow Never Did. (Actually, you probably did read some of these books – but wondered later Why You Bothered.)

Wilbur’s send-up of the herd aspect of popular reading tastes and over-the-top book publicity is called  Better Book Titles.
