WEIRD Title Trivia!
Do you think you’re well read? Do you think you can spot a fake from the real thing? If you answered “yes” to either of these questions then step right up and spin the WEIRD Title Trivia Wheel! Whatever title it lands on you have to say if it’s the title of a real book or goofy title a bunch of librarians thought up. Give it a try and win an Earbud Stasher to get you through any day tangle free.

Write On: e-Typewriter Poetry
