Replace book titles with New Zealand towns
By Duncan Wilson
The hashtag #replacebooktitleswithnewzealandtowns took a hold on Twitter yesterday, causing hundreds of Kiwis to replace a word in a book title with a New Zealand town name.
The topic idea, which appears to have been started by Christopher Howe, spent the night as the top trending topic on the social network.
It wasn't long before RadioLIVE bods had a crack, most notably Marcus Lush chipping in with "The Diary of Anne Franklin" and "He's Just Not That Into Urenui".
I had a crack at a few as well; "Where's Welly", "A Brief History Of Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu" and "James And The Ninety Mile Beach" were my efforts.
But the best efforts on Twitter deserved rewarding. And what better reward to receive than having your New Zealand town book title suggestion embodied in an actual cover?
Here are our top ten New Zealand book titles from the Twitter hashtag #replacebooktitleswithnewzealandtowns
