Sometimes a Title Is All You Need

Ever wish the title of a book would tell you everything you need to know about the story inside? Better Book Titles offers just that: a succinct description of the plot in the title alone. You'll find some local favorites, such as the much revered Texas Public Schools Suck (aka Fahrenheit 451) and Chicago: Home of the Worst Dads Since 1893 (aka Jimmy Corrigan), among many others.
