books that didn’t make the 2004 bestseller list

the newest issue of The Wittenburg Door has a great sidebar called “books that didn’t quite make the 2004 best-seller list”. some highlights:

    – The Da Vinci Crossword, by Dan Brown
    – Chicken Soup for the Vegan Soul, edited by Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hanson

    – The Five People You Meet in Hell, by Jack Chick
    – An Unfortunate Series of Poorly Written Books #1: The Deadly Dull Dispensationalist, by Lemony Lahaye and Junky Jenkins

a few more to add, of my own design:

    – Actually Thinking About Youth Ministry (see, i’m afraid this wouldn’t be a bestseller)
    – The 101 Best Youth Ministry Game-Variations of the Egg-in-Armpit Relay
