Better Book Titles

Have you ever thought that a book's title could be re-written to better evoke the story?

I'm sure a few of you have seen this already, but in case you haven't, check out Better Book Titles.

Here are a few of my favorites.

John Milton: Paradise Lost

Richard Ford: The Sportswriter

Herman Melville: Moby Dick

William Shakespeare: Hamlet

J.K Rowling: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

And, perhaps my favorite...Not from the Better Book Titles site, but was mentioned in reference to the site on Language Log

Strunk & White: The Elements of Style
