And the prize goes to....

..well, that's up to you if you wish to vote for the year's oddest book title.

Cooking with Poo simply turns out to be an unfortunate side-effect of a name in another language, which doesn't seem to me to be quite the point; while A Century of Sand Dredging in the Bristol Channel: Volume 2: The Welsh Coast, A Taxonomy of Office Chairs, Estonian Sock Patterns All Around the World and The Mushroom in Christian Art seem unsurprisingly logical and may serve some useful purpose to someone, however specialised they might seem for the general reader.

So we're left with Mr Andoh's Pennine Diary: Memoirs of a Japanese Chicken Sexer in 1935 Hebden Bridge, or The Great Singapore Penis Panic, both of which suggest an interesting tale or two.
