Ya da, Ya da – 21 Great Book Titles to Read
Good Reads (over 4,000) here reduced to 20.
Check out Listopia’s reading lists (categorised for you, by them).
The 21 Great Book Titles have been chosen, because of – their titles.
A short and to the point post about fab reading. Check them out. If you click on the Good Reads link above, it takes you to a summary of each title they list.
I took my choices from their first 100 suggestions, then click on their book title link to read a summary of the book, and find out where to get hold of it. Furthermore, if you join up, you can do a wish list called ‘Want to read.’ (Great title in itself – just add – it).
My reasons for choosing them are:
I have heard of it, I haven’t read it, but would love to, because of the title, or it’s because I have, and I love the attention-grabbing title which drew me to the book in the first place.
A few are due to the heading, but I have never heard of them, clicked, read the summary and thought, yeah, stick it on the list.
Some are because they are great loves of my life, which books can do for you, and reading the titles alone makes me feel happy.
The purpose behind this list, goodness gracious you need to ask?
It’s for fun!
Oh, yes and to check what a good title can do. Some are almost ordinary but have become iconic.
It’s a wonderful harvest. Enjoy!

My favourite ones
It’s a tight call are the last two. Firstly, To Kill a Mockingbird was a beloved book from school days, which I fell in love with, it hit me so deeply, I never forgot it.
Don’t worry, he won’t get far on Foot.
It is a cartoon by John Callahan, and then became his autobiography. I came across him recently due to the film of the same name. His story is one of redemption, his humour is wickedly funny. A lesson in how not to make anything sacred. Humour can be a great leveler in life.
