Title Play

This eclectic book list contains books with a clever title that uses a play on words, a pun, a joke, or titles that have double meanings. From cozy mysteries (so many mysteries with puns in the title, they are almost a genre in themselves) to nonfiction books about math, your sure to find a title to make you smile and a book to interest you.

We're sure we've missed a few great titles. Please let us know if you find a punny title of your own so we can add it to our list.
