Boring Books Hashtag Makes Twitter Trend

The #BoringBooks hashtag was trending Twitter recently, drawing responses that included Lord of the Flies, 50 Shades of Grey, as well as puns on book titles like Charlotte’s Website.

The Paris Review‘s Tumblr page has linked to a number of funny puns of books. Check out some of their favorites:

“Aesop’s Tables”—@FakePaulCola

“One Hundred Years of Solitaire”—@Dr_Dmo

“Crime and Probation”—@larrymeath

What’s the most boring book that you’ve ever read?

The #BoringBooks hashtag has also been a popular hashtag for students to complain about summer reading lists, as @funschelle suggested when tweeting, “any one you r assigned to read in class.” @wikihow took advantage of the trend to give readers tips on how to read a boring book.
