Quick! If asked to select the oddest book title, which one of the above would you select?
In the poll The Bookseller held to select that oddest title in the past thirty years, the winner was Greek Rural Postmen and Their Cancellation Numbers, a compilation of Greek postal routes.
The Bookseller reported:
The vote to discover the oddest title of the past 30 years was run in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Diagram Prize for Oddest Book Tittle of the Year. The prize was first conceived by The Diagram Group's Bruce Robertson as a way of avoiding boredom at the Frankfurt Book Fair. In its first year, in 1978, Proceedings of the Second International Workshop on Nude Mice picked up the award.People Who Don't Know They're Dead came in second, and How to Avoid Huge Ships finished third.
I would have selected How to Bombproof Your Horse.
