From my email...

...comes this gem:

Here's your chance to vote on the book title of the year:

Here are this year's contestants:

-- "Tatooed Mountain Women and Spoon Boxes of Daghestan"
-- "How Green Were the Nazis"
-- "D. Di Mascio's Delicious Ice Cream: D. Di Mascio of Coventry--An Ice Cream Company of Repute, with an Interesting and "Varied Fleet of Ice Cream Vans"
-- "The Stray Shopping Carts of Eastern North America: A Guide to Field Identification"
-- "Proceedings of the Eighteenth International Seaweed Symposium"

Now I know why I've never written a book....

These are real books???
I really COULD write a book!
I could title it "1,300 Cute Things Zao Does!
among many other meaningless topics...

Sorry to break the news to you, Paula, but Zao is way more interesting and meaningful than seaweed....
