Cipher Nine, Dragonborn This thread is about posting books written by fictional characters. You name the book the characters are from, then the books that they might conceivably write if they had rather ironic senses of humor and if you would or wouldn't read them. For example,

The Lord of the Rings

(Books I would not read)

Tricksy Little Hobbitses: A Memoir, by Gollum

Of Orcs and Men, by Aragorn

Life as a Giant Eye, by Sauron

How to Block Arrows Effectively, by Boromir

Changing Gender Roles and how they can Effect Your Life, by The Witch-King of Angmar

You are allowed to pick any book you wish, as long as it's fiction and, most importantly, keep a light sense of humor. Go!


Martine lol I can't think of anything... but the ones you came up with are hilarious!!!

Hilarious! but may I sugggest an alternate title... "This IS the Book You Want"

People who enjoy this thread might enjoy my quiz about the 10 Greatest Books Never Written. Books like "There and Back Again" that appear in fictional works but were never actually written.
