What a wonderful little book. I read through it tonight and was completely fascinated with all of the title changes and all of the thought that goes into titling a book.

Thanks for sharing this!

Picked this up a couple of nights ago. Very entertaining and educational. Got a chuckle out of Peter Benchley's comments about "Jaws". He says "My father didn't like it. My agent didn't like it. My wife didn't like it. And I didn't like it much. But the bottom line was, Who cares. Nobody reads first novels anyway."

Caught at the meet-up in Toronto. Looks amusing.

Thanks, Leester!
