Sponsored by The Bookseller, it's time to vote for the oddest book title of the year. Last year's winner was a book called People Who Don't Know They're Dead: How They Attach Themselves to Unsuspecting Bystanders and What to do About It. This year's contenders are:

  • Tattooed Mountain Women and Spoon Boxes of Daghestan
  • How Green Were the Nazis?

Vote here!

In keeping with that sentiment Law Librarian Blogger Joe Hocknicki is now running a contest for "Oddest Law Book Title of the Year". See below.

I received so many emails identifying odd law book titles in response to yesterday's post about Bookseller's poll for the oddest book title of the year that I have decided it would be fun to run a contest to identify the oddest law book title.

Nominations Due by March 23. To submit a title, please identify the work in a comment to this post. Nominations will be accepted until COB Friday, March 23. There is no limit to the number of nominations one may make or when the work was published, but the submitted title must be verifiable.

Don't worry if you don't see your comment displayed immediately. This blog is configured so that all comments have to be approved before publication in order to eliminate comment-spam.

Voting Starts on April 2. I will create an online poll that will be published on this blog on Monday, April 2.

Titles I have already received by email will be included in this poll. Joe Hodnicki
