Lily’s Team Pick: Better Book Titles

I’m sure many of you internet and Tumblr savvy people have come across a tumblr called Better Book Titles but I, until very recently, had not. So when I happened across it the other day I just assumed I had “discovered” it–much like Christopher Columbus “discovered” the Americas and Oprah “discovered” The Secret. Anywho, it is exactly what it sounds like—a collection of “better” titles for famous books.

Here are some of my favs:

Virginia Woolf: Mrs. Dalloway

 

Alice Sebold: The Lovely Bones

 

Nathaniel Hawthorne: The Scarlet Letter

 

Judy Blume: Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret

  1. This is one of the best Tumblrs. My favorite is still the renaming of Margaret Atwood’s “Handmaid’s Tale” as “Sarah Palin’s America.” I was just glad I wasn’t the only one who thought that when reading that book.

  2. I love that site! I even submitted one, but I don’t think it ever went up because the guy hadn’t read the book. It was Death in Venice by Thomas Mann and I re-titled it “Why Don’t You Have A Seat Over There” and photo-shopped Chris Hansen on to the cover.
