A World Without Books - BLOG HOP

Today's post is in conjunction with the Blog-A-Licious Blog Tour: a fantastic blog hop that brings together bloggers of all genres, backgrounds, and locations. I definitely recommend the blog featured before mine in today's hop: RHIANNON PAILLE ; and the blog featured after mine (and host of the tour!): BLOG-A-LICIOUS BLOGS. Do stop by and say Hello, as several blogs on the tour are having giveaways and contests. Enjoy! 

A World Without Books Would Leave Readers Hungry! It'd Be Like…

Lady and the Tramp without spaghetti
City of Ashes without scotch
The Art of Racing in the Rain without pepperoncini
The Singer of All Songs without honey
Fat Chance without Oreos
The Killer’s Cousin without beef stew
A Game of Thrones without suckling pig
The Sefuty Tales without lamb
Halfway to the Grave without moonshine
Marcelo in the Real World without fish
Goodbye Milky Way without food tablets
Backstage at the White House without eggs
Skin Hunger without apples
The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio without bacon slabs
My Soul to Take without mac and cheese

And But What Are They Eating? Without Food! 

Good Reads and Good Eats to All :)


  1. I love discovering your blog, Shelley, an this was a great post. Thanks for including Marcelo In The Real World - a favorite.

  2. Hey Shelley - this is Janet, I'm the one who just posted your info on my website. I would like to send you a personal message regarding a future possible post I might have for you. Where may I contact you with a private message?

    Great way to say a lot. Great to be with you on this blog tour.

  6. So much fun being on this blog tour! Love your very cool!

  7. Cute and original approach to the topic. :)

  8. Shelley,

    What a clever approach!

    Nice to meet you!

  9. Over from the Blog-A- Licious tour and what a trip this was - so glad to have discovered you. Loved your peice. Kriti -

  10. Had to come by again Shelley. I still laugh every time I read that post. Very sweet and intelligent with great writing. :)

  11. Great post! Love the thinking about no food in stories. How about "How to Eat Fried Worms" with no worms? Or Harry Potter without Butterbeer? Glad to be on the Blog-A-Licious Blog Tour with you!

  12. Very nicely done! Now, I'm ready for lunch!
    Great being on the tour with you!

  13. I think you have a interesting niche in writing. You must really enjoy cooking to even tackle the topic. And remember the movie Rataloulli? Don't know if it's spelled right but the animation of the rat who was a chef, in the Disney movie.

  14. This was oh so funny. Thank you Shelley for joining the tour.
    Cheers - Dora

  15. Shelley,
    Your post was the greatest.... This was to funny :)

  16. Now this post is so witty! I enjoyed it!

    Glad to meet you on this FAB Blog-A-Licious Tour!

  17. Great. Now I'm hungry. Excellent post!!

  18. What a great post, Shelley! I thought about cookbooks, as well. The theme didn't specify novels. What if Julia Child's cookbooks never explained how to make a chickeny chicken? Or Joy of Cooking never walked me through buttermilk pancakes? Horrors! Great post.

  19. That's a real clever take on the topic, Shelley! :)

  20. Really cute, fun and delicious post! I'm now following you and looking forward to more goodies from you.

    Regards, Mari

  21. Beatifully delivered! Hear hear for the food in books!
