Is This Title Real?


Does anyone else pay attention to titles? I’ll admit, I’m getting bad at remembering the specific name of a book I read and enjoyed. Authors’ names I recall, and really that has always seemed more important to me. But it is getting a bit disconcerting to have to try and describe a book I read, saying, “You know, the Lee Child novel where the people got thrown out of a plane over a desert?” It’d be so much handier if I just recalled the title. Unfortunately, titles, along with appointment dates and phone numbers have been among the victims of my unraveling memory these days.

But on the flip side there are titles that once encountered are unforgettable. Pride and Prejudice. Coffee, Tea or Me? Go Ask Alice. Pregnesia.

Yep, that’s right, I said it. Pregnesia. It was an Intrigue out last year. I dare you to forget that title.

Which brings me to my point. (Bet you thought I didn’t have one ) Have you ever watched the bit on Jay Leno, “Is This Headline Real?” Let’s see how you do. I’ll list some titles and you try to guess which ones are real and which aren’t. Ready?
