message 6: by Ben (new)

Ben Brevity is the soul of wit.... but I found it hard to come up with titles that are THAT brief!


message 8: by Andréa (new)

Andréa Fever 1793, Dumbo, and The Clique exceed the one-syllable rule.


message 9: by Andy (new)

Andy Removed those, also Empty, Anthem, XVI, and Proxy.


message 10: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl What about books with a one syllable title followed by a strapline, e.g.

Faust: Part One
Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex
Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking

?

I think those should be removed.

I tend to consider only the actual title for title lists, so for me, Bonk and Blink would qualify. For many books like them, the strapline isn't included on all the editions (or at least not on Goodreads).
