Very Short Books I May Write (UPDATED)

John on March 30, 2010 at 1:28 pm

I’ve wanted to write a book for some time. Something weighty and important but without all the long chapters and footnotes. Imagine Jonah Goldberg’s Liberal Fascism — the Readers Digest version.

I want the blog-cred that comes with the book, I just can’t see spending a whole lot of my valuable time writing all those words and, even worse, the punctuation! (Talk about fascism! Who says the comma has to go inside the quotations?). Let’s face it, as a blogger I’ve got lots of better things to do than sit around and…okay, bad example.

But I’ve come up with a plan that allows me to write a book without long stints in front of the keyboard. I just need a topic that doesn’t lend itself to wordiness. I’m confident some of these ideas could have no wordy-words at all, just a clever jacket with my picture on the back and a few blank sheets for heft.

Anyway, here’s what I’ve got so far:

  • Government Programs that Cost Less than Advertised
  • Spam Ads that Will Change Your Life
  • The Kept Promises of Barak Obama
  • The Complete Differences Between Social Security and a Ponzi Scheme
  • The Thoughtful Prose of Huff Post Commenters
  • Rich Liberals’ Tributes to Capitalism
  • Things Michael Moore Hasn’t Eaten
  • All the Good Parts of the Star Wars Prequels
  • Important Stuff on Facebook
  • ACORN’s Guide to Ethical Tax Prep
  • Lady Gaga’s Enduring Legacy
  • Tiger Woods’ Advice on Sexual Purity
  • The Unshakable Pro-Life Convictions of Bart Stupak
  • Gravitas the Biden Way
  • Conservative Sanctimony at the Oscars
  • Original Ideas in James Cameron’s Avatar
  • How to Get Rich Blogging

I’ll try to think of some more…

Scott Adds: I had to get in on this.  Here’s what I’ve come up with thus far…

  • The Nancy Pelosi Story:  An Idiot in 3 Acts
  • How Sean Penn Saved America (forward by Bill Marr)
  • How Sean Penn Saved Venezuela (forward by Hugo Chavez)
  • Putting the Cool Back Into Fascism (forward by Sean Penn)
  • Avoiding the Race Card:  On the Record with Sharpton, Jackson and Jimmy the Greek
  • High School Musical and the Future of Broadway
  • The Deep Thoughts of Harry Reid
  • And Idiots Guide to Al Gore and Global Warming
  • It Takes a Village (Idiot):  The International Triumphs of Hillary Clinton
