Behind the curve as usual, I’ve discovered a new game that was hot a few months ago: Scale Back a Book. You take a famous book title and just . . . take it down a notch. (Check out #ScaleBackABook on Twitter for plenty of funny stuff.)

Here’s what I’ll be checking out of the less-visited wing of the library no time soon:

A Tale of One City

The Adequate Gatsby

The Patina’d Testament and The Refurbished Testament

On the Shoulder (by Jack Kerouac)

To Intimidate a Mockingbird

Wuthering Hummocks

The Jungle First Draft

1983

The Sun Also Tenses Its Glutes and Hamstrings

The Mauve Letter

Misdemeanors and Written Warnings

The Viscount of Monte Cristo

Atlas Shifted Uneasily and Then Resumed the Position

Request for an Interview with the Vampire

The Third Sex (0r should it be The First Sex? Or The Sex 2.5? I can’t decide)

Thus Implied Zarathustra

and

Fleurs de Naughty

Whatcha got? And gosh, don’t you have a job or something?
