Today’s World Book and Copyright Day. When I was pondering what to write for this occasion I ran through a few book titles, starting with my own novel, Hitler and Mars Bars. And that got me thinking – about ‘and’. Ever noticed how many book titles use the word ‘and’ to pair two words or phrases? There’s quite a few. Places, people, objects, emotions – lots of things can be linked.
How many books can you name that use this structure for their title?
Here’s some familiar ones, classic and contemporary:
How about some less familiar ones?
How many others can you add to my list?
I love finding interesting book titles. If a title grabs me, I’m more likely to pick up the book and read it. What do you think makes a memorable book title?
