Thanks to her quirky sense of humor and a great knack for storytelling, Roach’s book is an appetizing (I couldn’t resist!) piece of popular science writing. To help bring some attention to this worthy book, we recently asked our Twitter followers to provide their own #GulpLit titles—famous book titles with a digestive twist. Some of my favorite entries were: A Wrinkle in Chyme, Swallow and Amazons, Profiles in Roughage, and Infinite Ingest.


If you’re on Twitter, follow @nookBN and join the fun by offering your own #GulpLit book titles!

I don't do Twitter, but how about "It Takes A Villus" ...?


(According to, villus is a noun  -- the plural is villi --  with the following definition, pertaining to anatomy/zoology:

"one of the minute, wormlike processes on certain membranes, especially on the mucous membrane of the small intestine, where they serve in absorbing nutriment. ")
