....a blog post

I thought that the pretension of adding ":a novel" at the end of a title of what is quite obviously a novel was a fad that would pass.  But just this month we have a plethora of novels with this clarifying phrase in their titles, including books from Neil Gaiman, and Janet Evanovich. And this on books that would not easily be mistaken for textbooks or collections of poetry. So I guess my pet peeve with be peeving me for some time to come.
