Intrigued much? Book titles made more enticing by changing a word or two

This is inspired!

The amazingly talented folks at college humor, whose most excellent literary shenanigans I discovered via laughingsquid.com, have made some changes to the titles of much loved and well known books to make them, in the parlance of the interweb, more click bait worthy (in other words you’re more inclined to click on the url).

It’s enormously clever, managing to be both amusing and a brilliant send up of the dumbing down and easily distracted nature of the modern attention span.

I like to think I am resistant to those sorts of word trickery but I find myself seduced into clicking on all sorts of ultimately unfulfilling links by a snappy assemblage of enticingly worded phrases so college humor are definitely onto something here!

You can find out just well they have nailed this modern twist on the catchy headline by checking the full list of covers here.
