Have you ever tried to buy a book, and the title slipped your mind? How about worked at a bookstore or library, and had a customer or patron not be able to remember the title or the author? Sometimes it can be frustrating, sometimes funny–almost always it’s rewarding when the bookseller or librarian, with a great knowledge of books, uses their detective skills and figures out which book it is!
The titles people mangle, though, can be pretty funny. Read about some of them in this article–and don’t miss the comments; some of the funniest are there.
Have you had someone mangle a title? I’d love to hear it.
