The Bookseller magazine has announced the shortlist for the Diagram Prize for Oddest Book Title of the Year, and invited the public to vote.
Unfortunately my choice Cheese Problems Solved is currently lagging in third place behind If You Want Closure in Your Relationship, Start With Your Legs and I Was Tortured By the Pygmy Love Queen. Also-rans — so far anyway — are How to Write a How to Write Book; Are Women Human? And Other International Dialogues; and People who Mattered in Southend and Beyond: From King Canute to Dr Feelgood.
Also nominated was Squid Recruitment Dynamics but alas, it was ruled out of the running on a technicality.
For more about the prize and a description of the nominees see here. Then cast your vote! The winner will be announced on March 28. At some point there will be a public vote for the “Diagram of Diagrams” – the oddest book title ever.
Thanks to American Libraries Direct for letting us know about the contest.
