Below are 25 hypothetical book titles generated by mixing up the letters of author first and last names. I originally didn’t mean this to be a game, but since I know some of you like a challenge, I’ve left the author names blank to give you a chance to figure out the anagrams. If you do manage to decipher them all, then you win my total respect and admiration… and your brain should probably be displayed in a museum someday.

If you’d like to skip the brain tease and go straight to the answers, just scroll down to the bottom of the post to see the complete list with unscrambled names.
