Oddest Book Titles of the Year Award

by OMB Staff on November 10, 2007

Okay, here’s an odd topic…

The Bookseller, a British book-trade magazine has been running twenty years of competition to find the oddest book title of the year.

Some of this year’s winners include:

Winner: “Weeds in a Changing World
Runners-up: “Procrastination and Task Avoidance: Theory, Research and Treatment” and “Guide To Eskimo Rolling
Previously, titles have included:

Collect Fungi on Stamps
Psychotherapy and the Bored Patient
-From Coherent Tunneling to Relaxation
-Parish Ministers’ Hats

These are strange enough titles that one might actually read the book, just to see if the strangeness continued beyond the title page.
