Which book will win "Oddest Title" contest?

At long last, the wait has come to an end: The Diagram Prize has announced its six finalists.

Dog The award, created by the trade magazine The Bookseller, honors the Oddest Book Title of the year. Who will wear the crown previously worn by Crocheting Adventures with Hyperbolic Planes? (which The Bookseller assures us saw huge sales after it won - if by "huge" you mean 95 copies) Here are the contenders:

8th International Friction Stir Welding Symposium Proceedings, various authors

What Color is Your Dog? Joel Silverman

Managing Your Dental Practice the Genghis Khan Way, Michael R. Young (this one's gonna give the Friction Stir Welding book a run for its money)

The Generosity of the Dead, Graciela Lowenstein

The Myth of the Social Volcano, Martin King Whyte

The Italian's One-Night Love Child, Cathy Williams

Vote here for your favorite. The winner will be announced on March 25.
