I must read 10,000 book reviews over the course of a year. Why I keep lists of some things baffles even me, but here are my Favorite Funny Titles from 2007. Most are fiction (with the majority being 'punny' mysteries), but there are a few non-fiction titles mixed in as well.
Duplicity Dogged the Dachshund by Blaize Clement (the 2nd Dixie Hemingway, petsitter, mystery)
Edward Trencom’s Nose: a novel of history, dark intrigue and cheese by Giles Milton (comic thriller set in a London cheese emporium)
Lulu Meets God and Doubts Him by Danielle Ganek (the NY art world as seen by a Soho gallerista)
An Arsonist’s Guide to Writers’ Homes in New England by Brock Clarke (the Emily Dickinson homestead fire was an accident, he swears)
If You Want Closure in Your Relationship, Start with Your Legs: a guide to understanding men by Big Boom (why would you trust the advice of an author named Big Boom?)
The Latke Who Couldn’t Stop Screaming by Lemony Snicket (great Christmas/Hanukkah story for ages 4-8)
The Da Da De Da Da Code by Robert Rankin (promises to leave Dan Brown fans “breathless”!)

Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians by Brandon Sanderson (for teenagers)
Boobs: a guide to your girls by Elisabeth Squires (yes, it’s about breast health)
