Judging a Book by Its Cover

Famous novel titles misinterpreted.

Women’s Murder Club: a group of women who meet every month to discuss their latest murders and chose who will perform the next.

The Hunger Games: an eating contest or a diet book

The Catcher in the Rye: a boy who plays baseball in bread

To Kill a Mockingbird: a hunting guide

1984: a history book…probably out-of-date (read: still used in most middle schools)

A Clockwork Orange: a piece of fruit worked into gears…a precursor to A Steampunk Orange

A Farewell to Arms: the Venus de Milo story (too easy)

The Sun Also Rises: a book on optimism for pessimists

David Copperfield: the life and times of an illusionist (obviously)

Vanity Fair (isn’t that a magazine?):

Little Women: a story about Munchkins in the land of Oz

The Portrait of a Lady: the story of how Leonardo da Vinci convinced Mona Lisa to pose for a painting

In Search of Lost Time: how I feel after returning home from work

The Diary of a Nobody: an alternate title to this blog

Three Men in a Boat: a butcher, a baker, and a candlestick maker

Scoop: either a reporter with a story or a story about the latest cat box litter OR a reporter with an inside line on the dangers of a new cat litter

Wise Children: probably a story about young vampires
