Hurry! Hurry! Hurry!

Only a few weeks to register your vote for the Oddest Book Title of the Year.

The Bookseller magazine has been running the competition for quite a while now. In among the laughs and raised eyebrows, I can't help thinking there's a candidate or two for new categories to add to the Calvino meme.

How about:

Books You're Glad You Don't Feel the Need For: A close contest this, for me, between
Cheese Problems Solved and
People Who Mattered in Southend and Beyond: From King Canute to Dr Feelgood.

Books You Suspect Might Be More Trouble Than They're Worth If You Read Them on the Tube:
Are Women Human? And Other International Dialogues

Books That Are Likely to Prove a Severe Disappointment:
I Was Tortured by the Pygmy Love Queen
