A Puzzling Challenge

              THIS MINI-CHALLENGE IS NOW CLOSED!
I'm tallying answers as fast as I can and will announce the winner ASAP.  Thanks for all your entries.  Hope you had fun!


Hey, Read-a-thon-ers!  Welcome to Just One More Thing... where we like puzzles, books and food.  This hour's mini-challenge combines all three.  Below is a picture puzzle with portions of ten book covers.  The title of each book contains a type of food (for example: If You Give a Moose a Muffin, would qualify.)  How many can you name?

Leave your list of the ten foods represented in the comment section.  No need to include the full book title - unless your just compulsive that way.   Comments will remain hidden until the challenge closes in three hours (12:00 noon, Central Time).  The winner will be randomly selected from all correct entries.  Even if you don't know all ten, list as many as you can - there will be a second random drawing from all entrants.

And speaking of prizes . . . The winner will receive this prize package:
Recipe box, autographed copy of Peas, Beans and Corn by Jennifer Wixson, 
English Tea Murder by Leslie Meier, and The Scarlet Pepper by Dorothy St. James

An entrant drawn at random will receive a set of recipe cards.  Good Luck!

A big thank you to Jennifer Wixson for donating the signed copy of her book.  Find out more about Jennifer and her books here.

  19. First off, what a great challenge! :)
    Second here are my answers. I'm fairly certain I got 7 right and 1 is a guess.
    2 others have me totally stumped

    - Green eggs and ham - Dr. Seuss

    - Chocolat (LOVE that movie still have yet to read the book though) - Joanne Harris

    - Coffee (though I don’t know the book)

    - Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society - Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows

    - Cake - there’s cake there I see it and want it. The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake (my favorite!) - Aimee Bender

    - The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie - Allan Bradley

    - The Grapes of Wrath - John Steinbeck (that one was tough but it looked so familiar so I scanned my bookshelf :))

    - My guess for the blue book in the center area is Harvest Moon - but otherwise I’m blank there.

  47. I recognize Fried Green Tomatoes and Green Eggs and Ham, but that's it. I'd go back and find out what the others are because I'm stubborn that way, dangnabit, but I want to spend the time reading. I'll probably come back once I wake up, Monday, Tuesday, whenever that might be and try and figure the rest of them out.
