Bizarre Book Titles

The Diagram Prize is awarded each year to the oddest title presented at the Frankfurt Book Fair. Guy agrees that several of these books fall into the 'must read category'.

1) Fancy Coffins to Make Yourself [A book for woodworkers]

2) Knitting with Dog Hair

3) Wood Carving with a Chain Saw

4) Drying Flowers With A Microwave

5) Nuclear War: What's In It For You?

6) How Green were the Nazis?

7) Old Tractors and the Men Who Love Them

8) How to Avoid Huge Ships

9) Bomb Proof Your House

10)Waterproofing Your Child

Dear Patty ~~ I love the Irish quotation, and your blog looks nice.
I hope you are happy with it now.
I sure don't want to hear that "Oops"
Thanks for the Pictures worth 1000 words and the reply to the Winter snow. I love the Bobbitt Update- that was so clever. Take care. I hope all is well at your house.
Love, Merle.

I'm with Arkansas Patti, I might not buy them, but I would certainly pick them up and flip through the pages!

As a side note ... would these titles translate well into e-books? Somehow I think not.
