Usually it's in the spring, and the chosen titles get coverage in the national press as well as on The Bookseller website.
As it's been run later this year it could have easily been missed.
So here's the contenders- and the result below that.
- The Commuter Pig Keeper: A Comprehensive Guide to Keeping Pigs when Time is your Most Precious Commodity by Michaela Giles.
- Renniks Australian Pre-Decimal & Decimal Coin Errors.
- Nipples on my Knee by Graham and Debra Robertson.
- An Ape’s View of Human Evolution by Peter Andrews.
- Love Your Lady Landscape: Trust Your Gut, Care for “Down There” and Reclaim Your Fierce and Feminine SHE by Lisa Lister.
Now none of those titles really grabs me, but as I missed the shortlist announcement I haven't really considered how odd they are!
The Pig one, and the Lady Landscape seem the most bizarre...
Anyway with many of the previous winners having something to do with animals - "The Joy of Chickens (1980), The Big Book of Lesbian Horse Stories (2003) and Goblinproofing One’s Chicken Coop (2012)"; it really does suggest any vaguely odd title with an animal in will score highly.
So this year's winner was of course The Commuter Pig Keeper... with 40% of the votes.
Runners-up were Renniks Australian Coins title with 32.7%, and Nipples on... with 13.9%.
Disappointingly the Lady Landscape title only received 2.8% of the vote. It was certainly odd, but perhaps the title could have done with a bit more work to improve its lucidity.
