Better Book Titles is like a sly, further-abridged SparkNotes. The genius behind the Tumblr is Dan Wilbur, and every day he satirizes a different book. He does so by taking famous books and using photoshop to put a new title on the iconic covers. Many of the new titles are laugh-out-loud funny, and I’m very impressed by the sheer quantity of books Wilbur’s been able to critique.
Better Book Titles does a number of things– books are either boiled down to a single message:
I think you could put that title on The Help (Wilbur gives that one this funny name) as well. If I were renaming the Larsson book, I would call it Reading This Makes You Just as Gross as Martin Vanger. If you have any suggestions (that are less against the international bestselling novel grain than mine), Wilbur frequently takes reader submissions, so go wow him with your creativity.
