Author Comments: 

Please contribute! Inspired by dgeiser13's link to songs with numbers in the title.

Rita Mae Brown - Six of One
Alexander Dumas - The Three Muskateers
Katherine Neville - The Eight

done - thanks!

My suggestions:

Ten Little Niggers (Agatha Christie) (the book is no longer available under that title)
Catch-22 (Joseph Heller)
Slaughterhouse 5 (Kurt Vonnegut)

More to come...

Oh, and what about:

Twelve Red Herrings by Jeffrey Archer

You could use:
Sozhenitsyn: One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich
The Five People You Meet in Heaven
Highsmith: Eleven
Verne: Dick Sand, or: A Captain at Fifteen
Orwell: Ninteen Eighty-Four (cheating?)
Fenolgio: The Twenty-Three Days of the City of Alba: Stories

How About These:

-31 Songs, Nick Hornby

-The 39 Steps, John Buchan

-The History of the World in 10 1/2 Chapters, Julian Barnes

Isaac Asimov - Nine Tomorrows
Judith Miller - God Has Ninety-Nine Names

What about:
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey
The Third Reich: A New History by Michael Burleigh
1985 by Anthony Burgess (if you're using 1984)
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

I'm not sure how you would use the last one... I read the title as 4-5-1, not 4 hundred... etc

Thanks for the suggestions. I included "One ..." and "1985", as well as Fahrenheit 451 at number 451, as it is fundamentally four hundred fifty-one degrees at which paper burns in the novel. I left out "The Third Reich" as it is not a cardinal, but rather an ordinal, number - the basis for a whole new list, I suspect, if one wanted.

Thirteen O'Clock - Enid Blyton
The Big Four - Agatha Christie, The Four-Story Mistake - Elizabeth Enright

A quick look at the Agatha Christie bookshelf reveals:

Thirteen at Dinner
The Big Four
Five Little Pigs
Murder in Three Acts
One, Two, Buckle My Shoe
And Then There Were None
4:50 From Paddington
Towards Zero
The Thirteen Problems
The Seven Dials Mystery

Does the Novel 100 count?

I haven't heard of it (but that doesn't mean anything)- is the book's title "100" or "Novel 100"? Do you have the author's name? I can't seem to access amazon.com to look it up ...

It's actually called "The Novel 100" by Daniel S Burt. The reason I'm not sure it should count is that it's like Book Lust; it's really just a list of stuff to read.
Here's the link

I found a few more for you:

"The Crying of Lot 49" by Thomas Pynchon
"The Forty-Five Guardsmen" by Alexandre Dumas
"Twenty Years After" by Alexandre Dumas

84, Charing Cross Rd - Helene Hanff
Ten Books of Architecture- Vitruvius
Twelfth Night - Shakespeare
As I Look At Life by 14 Famous Writers

thanks! I'm disqualifying Twelfth Night for not being a cardinal number, and 10 Books of Architecture for being non-fiction, and the other as it is "by 14 writers", so 14 is not in the title.

The 13 Clocks – James Thurber

NINETEEN NINETEEN - John Dos Passos
42ND PARALLEL - John Dos Passos

42nd is out, too - it's ordinal, not cardinal

The House of the Seven Gables Nathaniel Hawthorne

I like that list!

Okay, I'm requesting no more contributions that are either a) outside 1-100, or b) a number already covered. I'd rather fill the rest of the list ...

26. Portrait of an Artist With Twenty-Six Horses by William Eastlake
30. Turning Thirty by Mike Gayle
40. North Dallas Forty by Peter Gent
50. Fifty Degrees Below by Kim Stanley Robinson

This can be completed quite easily by doing a search on Amazon.com, or would that be considered cheating ?

27. Twenty-Seven Bones: A Thriller by Jonathan Nasaw
60. Sixty Days and Counting by Kim Stanley Robinson
70. Seventy Times Seven (A Colton Parker Mystery) by Brandt Dodson
90. The Ninety Days of Genevieve by Lucinda Carrington

God Has Ninety-Nine Names by Judith Miller is non-fiction, so may I propose:

99. The Mystery of the 99 Steps (Nancy Drew Mystery Stories) by Carolyn G. Keene

One could use amazon, sure, but I'm sorta interested in what people come up with in other ways. I loved the Kim Stanley Robinson trilogy, BTW.

Oh, goodness - if I start quibbling about fiction/non, I'll be here forever ... but I'll add Nancy Drew. :)
