30+ Books With Numerical Titles

One of my local book stores runs a book club based on theme. Rather than assigning a specific book, they suggest a theme and members gather to discuss which book they chose on that theme, and what they thought of it. It’s the perfect set-up for mood readers, or people who are pretty particular in what they like to read. One of their recent themes caught my eye: books with numerical titles. Glancing over my own shelves, I noticed just how many of my books would’ve fit (if I’d gotten my shit together and actually participated). So, just in case you ever find yourself needing books with numerical titles for your own book club (or any other reason), here’s a list!

  1. Well this is a fun assignment. I have several of these and now I want to peruse my own shelves to see how many additional numerical titles I can find.

      Originally I thought I just had a handful, but the more I looked the more I found – it’s one of those things that you don’t see until you see it!
