Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
This week’s topic is Super Long Book Titles.
Here’s a few I came up with…
- The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer
- From The Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E. L. Konisburg
- The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon
- So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish by Douglas Adams
- The Elephants of Style: A Trunkload of Tips on the Big Issues and Gray Areas of Contemporary American English by Bill Walsh
- Applications of Social Research Methods to Questions in Information and Library Science by Barbara M. Wildemuth
- The Man Who Loved China: The Fantastic Story of the Eccentric Scientist Who Unlocked the Mysteries of the Middle Kingdom by Simon Winchester
- The Professor and the Madman: A Tale of Murder, Insanity, and the Making of the Oxford English Dictionary by Simon Winchester
- Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J. K. Rowling (and every other Harry Potter novel, really)
- Now You Take “Bambi” or “Snow White” and That’s Scary by Stephen King (technically an essay but still!)
I have to say, I prefer shorter book titles, even one-word titles, to super long ones 🙂
