I just noticed over in the What Are you Reading Now? thread that someone had accidentally touchstoned The Secret River and The Conjuror's Bird together, creating The Secret River and The Conjuror's Bird, which for some reason links to The Wind-up Bird Chronicle. Naturally I had to start playing around, and found at least one more interesting one:

Green Eggs and Ham and The Club Dumas = Fight Club

So, the Friday challenge: find the best accidental touchstone-combination-creations!
