15 Anagrams That Work Perfectly As Book Titles

(from huffingtonpost.com)


Little else is more amusing for book lovers than imagining alternative titles for beloved classics. Better Book Titles, a blog that names books after their literal plots or themes, is hilarious without fail. And of course, a number of authors explored alternate titles before settling on their final choice (did you know The Great Gatsby was almost titled Gold-Hatted Gatsby? Yikes!).

In keeping with this theme, we've created anagrams for a number of classic novels that could have worked as the actual titles. Enjoy!
