A book called How to Poo on a Date has won the 2014 Diagram Prize for the oddest book title of the year, an annual distinction awarded by The Bookseller, a business magazine that covers the book industry.
Written by Mats & Enzo and published by Prion, the book beat out other offbeat titles such as Are Trout South African? by Duncan Brown, Working Class Cats: The Bodega Cats of New York City by Chris Balsiger and Erin Canning, and Pie-ography: Where Pie Meets Biography by Jo Packham.
Past winners of the Diagram Prize — which dates back to 1978 — include Bombproof Your Horse (2004) by Lauren Tjaden and Rick Pelicano, The Joy of Chickens (1980), and The Stray Shopping Carts of Eastern North America: A Guide to Field Identification (2006).
Take note of these works if you are looking for something unusual to read during National Reading Month.
