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


message 2: by Seth (new)

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 5: by Harold (new)

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


message 6: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl When did chocolate become a fruit or vegetable?


message 7: 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 8: 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 9: 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?


message 11: by Julie (new)

Julie The list says "and grains too"

Also Catcher in the Rye?

'Rye' isn't a vegetable, as far as I'm aware (and it certainly isn't a fruit...). The description says 'OK, grains too, but don't go crazy with it.' but still... Grains should have been in the title then, in my opinion.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Rye is a grain.


message 15: by Vicki (new)

Vicki #47 The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie seems not to fit. While most pies contain fruit, not all do (custard, chocolate, etc.) Rhubarb is sometimes called "pie plant," but that's not what the title says.
