“Punny” Mysteries to Explore!

One of the best things about working in a library is, obviously, the books. More so, some of the titles that accompany them. 

I absolutely needed to share some of these quirky, punny, and downright terrible mystery book titles I’ve discovered that guarantee a good giggle! 

If you haven’t read any of them yet, I recommend you do for a wonderful read.

Happy Reading!
