Ah yes, books that might have been. What a great topic.
During the months of being in lockdown in 2020 and unable to leave home, like me you might have found time to read a lot of books.
Reading is a great way to pass the time and it’s often easy to become totally engrossed in the book you are reading, especially if it’s a story where the characters are well written. I guess the same isn’t true of a dictionary or telephone directory though.
Something that I have always found really funny are book titles and authors that are more of a joke than actual books, but it would be fun to write a book with a funny title and pen name that went along with it.
I know there are a lot more out there, hopefully you know a few and would be kind enough to share a few in a comment (link at the bottom of the page).
But for now, here is out list of books that might have been, or maybe should be.
THE FRENCH CHEF by Sue Flay
