Better Book Titles – Classing Up The Classics

Dan Wilbur is a comedian living in Brooklyn, New York and is also the creator of a humorous blog: Better Book Titles. Wilbur seeks to end the confusion often created by book titles and give potential readers helpful insights into a book’s plot by renaming books with more intuitive titles. Here are a few of my personal favorites:

John Steinbeck: The Grapes of Wrath
Better Book Title: F*&k tha Police

Homer: the Iliad
Better Book Title: An Angry Guy Get Angrier Then Chills

Lauren Weisberger: The Devil Wears Prada
Better Book Title: Shallow People Doing Shallow Stuff

Vladimir Nabokov: Lolita
Better Book Title: Likeable Rapists

Dan updates his site with a new title every weekday and on Friday he features a reader’s submission. I encourage you to check out Better Book Titles to check out the full list. Prepare to laugh!
