A few days ago I logged on to Twitter to find a fun hashtag going around. So popular was it that even some publishers were getting in on the action, adding their own ideas to the mix. The hashtag in question was #ChangeAWordRuinABook.

Some of the results were hilarious and I couldn’t help but come up with a few of my own too. So today, I bring you a fun post, filled with some silly book titles.
