Yeppp! I totally agree with Timothy.

I think I exhausted my "tongue in cheek" capital (and reserves) with the romantic eyes-thing thread ("the mirrors of the soul" if I'm not mistaken..)

Sorry to break the news, but between romance and HB novels there is an absolute link: they both use the roman alphabet (set aside the Greek and Russian authors).

Are we really going to something r.a.m.esque with this list?

PS: the cooking book thing was already done; believe it or not early this year Gallimard-France published a hors-collection Serie Noire book, with 200 recipes of food dishes that were mentioned in some of the HB/Noir
 novels. The recipes are for real, and from several different countries.
