Rejected Book Titles



As a former Christian bookstore owner and manager, I loved what we did.  I also loved poking fun at what I did and so did the person(s) who crafted this list of children's books that didn't quite make it to the printing press.  I wish I could claim credit for it but I can’t, nor can I even give credit to the rightful creator since I don’t know who it was.  Enjoy a few laughs on those of us who sell books!
