March Bookshelf

Theme for March: great titles. I love all these titles. Has anyone else noticed that short story collections seem to have the best titles? I am very partial also to The Wild, Unwilling Wife (bought only for the title at a yard sale a long, long time ago). Every library school student knows Bud, Not Buddy as the title that can screw up your library catalog search (the NOT boolean operator is key).  Even without the great title, The Quotidian Mysteries: Laundry, Liturgy and "Women's Work" is one of my favorite books ever.
