Don't tell me what to think about your book

I try to glance at the Audible Daily Deals every day and usually manage it on the weekdays. Today's deal features the kind of subtitle (or is it supposed to be a tagline?) that gives me a kneejerk "I'd hate this" reaction. It's bad enough when this kind of thing is the first sentence in the book's description, but when it's part of the actual title it's just embarrassing.

 

 

Just call it The Child Next Door, please. I don't need you to tell me that I will consider it "unputdownable." And I get to decide whether I think a book's twist is "brilliant." I checked, and this isn't just an Audible mistake, it's on the Amazon and Barnes & Noble product pages for the paperback as well.

Books With Numbers in the Title

Shout-out to URL Phantomhive for the idea!

 

All of these are taken from my "Read" shelf.  Sometimes, the numbers are in the subtitle.  Books with several numbers (e.g., history books with a date range in their title) are entered for all numbers.

Fun stuff: famous book titles as played on a drum kit

"What would a title of your favorite book sound like if it was played on a drum set? You can check it out for yourself."

 

this didn't work for me because I have an iPad.  But it made me curious, so I thought I'd share it here.  If it makes you curious too, and you decide to investigate further, maybe you could let us know if it's worth firing up the laptop?
