More Title Coincidences

Just yesterday while looking at books at Target, I came across this book:

Naturally, I thought about this story which I blogged about last week.

Now will there be confusion with all three of these titles?  Strangely, The Girl From the Train isn't a psychological thriller set in London as are  The Girl on the Train and Girl on a Train. Even so, there still might be some confusion, because there is some title similarity. Someone not familiar with The Girl From the Train might assume someone else means The Girl on the Train, or might say the same about Girl on a Train.

And also yesterday on Goodreads I came across a book that bears a title I have had under consideration for my current work in progress: The Story of My Teeth.

This has a totally different plot line from what I am writing. Again, since titles aren't copyrighted, there is nothing preventing me from using that title, though there's always the possibility of confusion between the two titles. 

I've also been getting title suggestions from people at work, including one that I may consider now. I will tell more about this another time.

I'm sure the title you pick will be awesome.
Enjoy your weekend.

It gets really challenging finding a title that hasn't been used, doesn't it?
