unusual book titles

I subscribe to an email newsletter called Shelf-Awareness.  It's written mostly for bookstore folks, but it keeps me up-to-date about what books are being featured in the news media, etc.  Today's newsletter contained an article about The Diagram of Diagrams Prize, and the votes being in for the "oddest book title of the past 30 years."  The winner was Greek Rural Postmen and Their Cancellation Numbers.  Runners up included People Who Don't Know They're Dead: How They Attach Themselves to Unsuspecting Bystanders and What to Do About It and How to Avoid Huge Ships.

I love the headings under Shelf Awareness. I'll take a look at this site.
