Seth Hrm... Dandelion Wine doesn't quite fit the category

Seth And Rubyfruit Jungle isn't quite a real fruit

Dandelions make a good salad, but I didn't think so when I was a kid. Corn (maize) is a grain, and so on. I suppose Vodka is potatoes, but I'd rather not go there or we would have to let poteen (puh-CHEEN) in as well and that thought sends shivers up my spine. ....Is there a booze-in-titles list ?


message 6: by Harold (new)

Harold Griffin This list seems imperfect without a Banana Fish. Still it has appeal.


message 5: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl When did chocolate become a fruit or vegetable?


message 4: by Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (last edited Jun 15, 2011 11:48AM) (new)

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Well, the cocoa is a nut, but...

ETA: Should we remove the chocolate ones?


message 3: by Dee (new)

Dee book 101 is Silent Witness: The Untold Story of Terri Schiavo's Death - doesn't seem to fit the list...


message 2: by Julie (new)

Julie Amused by people who think chocolate is a fruit or veggie. LOL


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Rice is a fruit or vegetable?

Y'all want me to clean this one up?
