PRESS FOR BETTER BOOK TITLES

"This blog is for people who do not have thousands of hours to read book reviews or blurbs or first sentences.  I will cut through all the cryptic crap, and give you the meat of the story in one condensed image.  Now you can read the greatest literary works of all time in mere seconds!

This page is for people who have trouble slogging through the information on book jackets or feel intimidated by the title and cover itself. How many times have you perused the cover of a novel only to rub your sore eyes and realize you’ve learned NOTHING from the book’s title?!” - From the Editor
