It turns out that books with one in the title are way more common than you think. Here are 100+ good books with one in the title, including both fiction and non-fiction. It's safe to say that most of these titles aren't books about the number one, but the core commonality between these books is that they have the word one in the title.

Books with one in the title include One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey, One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez, and One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss. If you have a favorite one book, vote it up below, or add it to the list if it's not already here. It doesn't matter if it's science fiction, fantasy, romance, or non-fiction - if the book has one in the name, it belongs on this list.
