What is your favorite book title?

I write as a way of life: stories, blogs, articles, almost-poems. I'm a freelancer, a vegetarian, and I listen to Leonard Cohen and enjoy French films. We are dying a little more with each new day we live, so shouldn't we make the most of our time?

Every single one of these books are fabulous! You have exceptional taste.
The Tender Bar. I love that it’s a play on the word bartender for a memoir set in a bar about a boy becoming a man. The characters in the bar all contribute to his life story and we learn that there is also some true tenderness to be found at this bar. So it works both ways. One of my favorite books.
I love the original cover of Extremely Loud Incredibly Close. It always stood out to me when I saw it coming in the library.
I’ve seen around a few covers I think, and they are all nice. Most great books have great covers, it seems. 🙂
Hahah I don’t see Dreamer listed there. Boy with a hat, you have reading to do!
What kind of book is that? 🙂
Fiction/Fantasy…and a very good read, if I don’t say so myself 🙂
Relentless by Dean Koontz, but your list is fantastic. I’ve read all but two of them, some I’ve loved so much I’ve downloaded to my iPod to listen to a well. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close was a favorite download. The narrator really makes ALL the difference.
I love audiobooks. I’ll grab that one soon.
All great books you listed and read of them except a couple.
‘A Thousand Splendid Suns’ by Khaled Hosseini.
Very good titles indeed. A few weeks ago, I found a poetry book in a small book corner in a dirty hostel in Cairo titled “No ship should allow drowning to vanish”.
That’s certainly an interesting title. 🙂
Why am I not surprised to see “100 Years of Solitude” on this list? 😉
Why am I not surprised Jessica comments on almost every post the boy with a hat composes? 😉
Because she likes the boy with a hat and he knows it. 🙂
He blushes. 🙂
And *she* blushes every time he “likes” one of her posts. That such a master would notice her work? She swoons.
It’s probably not the kind of book a guy would read, but “Chose the wrong guy, gave him the wrong finger” is a great title
I think there are many practical books out there with wonderful titles. But for this list I’ve chosen only ‘literary titles’. That’s a book I would not want to read indeed. 😛
100 Years of Solitude, The Name of the Rose, And Then There Were None are some of my favorites and, also, Eleven Minutes and The Posthumous Memoirs of Bras Cubas.
I absolutely adore the book the shadow of the wind! I have read the whole series at least three times! I’ve read almost all these books, you have amazing taste in reading material!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂
A Clockwork Orange, one of my favourites.
Well, pleased to notice some italian titles in your list!
Hello! I really enjoy your posts 🙂 … this time i’m leaving my contribution as well. Here goes: My favourite book tittle is: “Everything is illuminated” by Jonathan Safran Foer.
I’m missing The LittlePrince here….;)
This is a real gem. Read a few times and still I learn more each time
Absolutely! That’s what so lovely about it! The book grows along with the person.
Another book that grows with you which I have lost my copy of is “John livingstone seagull” great book about staying true to yourself and not following the crowd because you are told that you are meant to because it’s what you should do.
Sounds very wise. Questions what we are taught since our very beginnings – to obey. But often we should do the exact opposite.
I think I’d like to read that book! Thanks for mentioning it! 🙂
Not a problem at all. Let me know if u can get hold of it and what you think. I really need to read it again.
I will let you know 🙂
