If you’re on Bookish Twitter, you may have seen this tweet and the resulting thread floating around:
Every book/play title should be written in the form of Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret
Are You There Whale? It’s Me, Ahab
Are You There Lost Time? It’s Me, Proust
Are You There Godot? It’s Us, Vladimir and Estragon

There’s something about re-imagining book titles that’s endlessly entertaining, and I had a lot of fun reading through these on a lazy Sunday. In case you’re short on scrolling time, I thought I’d round up some of my personal favorites for your reading pleasure:
Are you there Pride? It’s me, Prejudice

And because I can’t resist, here’s one I came up with:
- Are You There, Everyone? It’s Me. Are You Hanging Out Without Me?
