Really, Really Odd Book Titles

I confess that I'm a sucker for odd book titles.

There's a sense of wonder: why did someone bother; but another side of me says that I should be open to new experiences.  Sometimes that can be a good thing.

It raises existential questions:  Should a person knit a sweater out of dog hair?  Why would farting be good?  What sort of crafts might be made out of pantyhose?

Are there delicious recipes that might be made from roadkill?  Am I missing something from my life?

There's a book on Gay Bulgaria.  Must be a fascinating read if I return to Varna or Plovdiv.

There is even a book entitled The Romance of Proctology.  Fascinating reading for bum doctors.

I did not see these on the list; but there are book titles like Father Christmas Needs to Wee and Bondage for Beginners.  I guess the latter one is illustrated.


  1. It seems Bondage for Beginners and Pantyhose Crafts would be purchased together.

  2. I must confess to never wearing pantyhose since I was at Ole Miss.

  3. I am enjoying my copy of "The Sensuous Dirty Old Man," by Isaac Asimov (writing as "Dr A"). My friend who has a used book business back home in PA found it for me. It's hysterically funny and offers lots of practical tips for men my age. I'm practicing the "cane pivot" now, so that I'll be ready when I need a cane.

  4. Those are intriguing reads........

  5. You have wide ranging interests!

  6. I'm amazed that someone actually wrote some of those books!

  7. There is a book, "Cuts, Shoota, and Leaves" that is really worth reading.
