What do you eat & drink while reading?

Kristy K (kristydanielle14) | 1 comments I usually don't eat anything, as I hate getting crumbs all stuck in the pages hehe. But I always love having either a cup of coffee or tea! How about you?


message 3: by Stephen (new)

Stephen | 2 comments Usually coffee or tea, sometimes I'll grab a sandwhich, but it has to be something without lots of mayo or oils. Crumbs on the page, I can blow off, but I can't stand oil stains!

Kelly | 3 comments I like to have a cup of coffee or a glass of wine or 2 while I read, depending on the time of day

Caitlin | 4 comments Usually something I can eat one-handed, like toast and jam, mixed nuts, dark chocolate--unless I'm in the middle of a thick hardcover that will lay flat when I open it!

message 7: by Marc-Antoine (new)

Marc-Antoine I don't eat while reading, I collect my books and don't want to get the pages dirty. But I do partake in enjoying a beverage... Coffee first thing in the morning, sitting in my Lazyboy by the fireplace and a good book. Herbal tea with a novel before going to bed. A glass of white or rose, or a great beer with a book at the campsite.

On a particularly cold Sunday evening I may bundle up be the fireplace with a good single malt scotch and a good book.

I don't drink coffee so as far as beverages goes I love to drink tea while reading. And because I am such a foody and I have massive cravings for something sweet, I love to eat chocolate / cookies / candy while reading. Something you can eat with one hand and without watching it =).

Stuart (asfus) | 5 comments I generally don't eat or drink when I read. Occasionally I might drink a glass of wine.

Madhulika Liddle (madhulikaliddle) | 9 comments It really depends - most of the time, I end up reading just before going to bed, so I don't eat or drink anything. Occasionally, though, my day is so rushed, the only time I get to read is while eating lunch - so I do that. But with my book always at a respectful distance from my food.

Holly (goldikova) When I dine alone at home I have a book holder that keeps the book open in front of me while I read.

Terri (terrilovescrows) | 6 comments Usually tea, Like to do the whole kettle/teapot brewing thing - but that only works when I am home

Deb (otherdeb) | 17 comments Always have both a hot and a cold beverage handy. For snacking, I usually have either fresh fruit or pistachio nuts.


message 16: by [deleted user] (new)

Shrimp crackers and green tea. The shrimp crackers I buy aren't greasy at all so no residue.

message 19: by Philippe (new)

Philippe Malzieu (malzieu) | 3 comments Green tee or wine. Especially white wine, a viognier, a little cold, for the flavors of walnut and dried fruits. Or a good rosé wine of Provence for the the flavor English candy, cold.

This sounds like a really nice quality time with precious wine and a book.

Mickey Hot coco with added cayenne pepper and espresso powder. I use Alton Brown's Hot Cocoa Mix recipe.

Oolong chai tea is a close second place while reading.

Mixed nuts for a snack sometimes.

Kasia (kasia_s) | 2 comments What am amazing group, big foodie myself :)

In the mornings a black tea with lemon and sugar is a must ( Taylors of Harrogate Yorkshire or Typhoo) and at night if in the mood a cold Japanese beer like Asahi as it's very dry and easy to drink.
