Is it interesting to know about edible books. We should love to read the books like eatable.

Now this definitely puts a whole new twist on the saying that "reading feeds our minds".

It is definitely a whole food, but it can be threatened by a new kind of book worms.

Plus, how can I get mad at the dog for chewing on the books now if they are going to be edible? I do hope that they are not in flavors that dogs will like, though. Perhaps they can make them in things like broccoli or spinach or something like that. Then again, nobody would want to eat them if they were in those kinds of flavors, so I guess that would defeat the purpose.

And a book smelling broccoli would not be an enjoyable reading experience. Maybe at the lunch table, but my parents taught me to not read at a lunch table.

I have always a pile of books to read, and I am often late : I hope they have not a "best-before date". And if I borrow an edible book at my local library, am I allowed to eat it?

I think that you might be allowed to eat it, but if you do eat it rather than return it, then you will probably be charged a late fee until the expiration date, so perhaps you should wait until just before the expiration date to do so otherwise it could get rather costly.

Perhaps I can lick it a bit to check if it is worth the fee?

Hmmm ... now that is an interesting suggestion. However, how many other people have licked it to taste it and determine whether or not it is worth the fee. Also, how many licks does it take before the words are illegible and the pages start to disintegrate?
