Googling Book Titles

Sometimes I'll type my name into Google to see what pops up, and if what pops up is some out-of-date information on an old website about me, I'll try to update it--or arrange to get it updated. When I Google my book titles, however, I reap more interesting results. I thought I'd share some with you, at least those that have nothing to do with the books themselves. I hope you enjoy these strange links related to my book titles, but I also hope you'll be intrigued enough to read the books themselves.
