Hosted by Long and Short Reviews.
This is one of those topics I could discuss all day without growing tired of it. Here are just a few of the humorous book titles I’ve seen lately. Have any of you ever read them? I’ve only read the first one so far. It was such an interesting look at neurology and some of the various ways the human brain can adapt to a serious illness or injury.
The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat and Other Clinical Tales by Oliver Sacks
Unspun Socks From A Chicken’s Laundry by Spike Milligan
I Could Pee on This: And Other Poems by Cats by Francesco Marciuliano
How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe by Charles Yu
Paranormal Dentistry for the Fanged and Friendly by Jackie Nacht
Bread Sculpture: The Edible Art by Ann Sayre Wiseman

Good list. I love ‘I Could Pee on This’, but then I have cats that are pips. Lol!
Thanks and LOL.
Thanks for coming by earlier.. and love your list. I’m a dental-phobe, but I still think I might read that dental book.. lol
You’re welcome. I’m a bit of a dental phobe, too, but that book does sound interesting.
I wasn’t listing real books in my response, but now you’ve reminded me of You’re Stepping On My Cloak And Dagger, an account of a fellow who semi-accidentally wound up as an OSS officer in World War II.
That sounds so interesting! Thanks for the recommendation.
I Could Pee On This always reminds me of How You Know Your Cat is Trying to Kill You (or something like that). Great list!
Oh, I know that book. It was pretty funny from what I recall.
Giggle!!! What fun book choices! I’ll have to check them out.
I love I Could Pee on This: And Other Poems by Cats <3 Haha I actually own that one. Another title I love, but I haven't read the book is "The Utterly Uninteresting and Unadventurous Tales of Fred, the Vampire Accountant"
Oh, how cool!
Yeah, I read “The Utterly Uninteresting and Unadventurous Tales of Fred, the Vampire Accountant” last year and really liked it. Don’t you think it would make a great TV show?
I have the Oliver Sacks books. It’s a good one. Nice list.
Thank you. Glad you like the Oliver Sacks book.
Oh my goodness, that cat poetry title is absolutely hilarious!! I also love How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe (I’ll bet it’s hard to do!).
I know, right?! Hehe.
And, yeah, it would be pretty tricky to live safely in a SFF universe.
I love “I Could Pee On This”. My cats could have written that.
Funnily enough, I have heard of both The Man Who Mistook… and I Could Pee on This… Great titles!
One of my own: The Wit and Wisdom of Highland Cows
I’m curious about The Wit and Wisdom of Highland Cows now.
