How Books Got Their Titles & Some Top 10 Lists

Ever wonder how a book got its title? There's a new blog, written by author Gary Dexter, called How Books Got Their Titles that answers just that. So far he's on number 23, with no indication of how far along he'll go, but he's keeping up with daily entries.

In other book news, the Times has posted three quirky top ten lists:

10 Literary One-hit Wonders

10 Spectacular Second Novels

10 Cursed Second Novels

Can you guess which one the book is on the right--one-hit, spectacular, or cursed?

Thanks for the link - I'm now up to 31 and have enough material to keep me going for a good while. Nice blog! I enjoyed the Times link.
