The Today programme has just had details of the winner of an award for the most boring book title:

Greek Rural Postmen and their Cancellation Numbers

I once owned a book with a title that makes the above looks like a thriller. About ten years ago I won a similar competition (in the Speccie, as it happens) when I sent in a copy of the following book - which is, I must add, entirely genuine:

Hospital Purchase Records Containing Grain Price Information in Fifteenth Century Ghent

Beat that.
