Fall Into Reading…….another Question for you

November 10, 2010 Uncategorized 10

How is your fall reading going? October was a little slow for me, but then I got lit up to finish reading two books and now I’ve finshed 3 since I began the challenge. 

I’m even behind on the great questions that have been posted on Callapidder Days.

I’m jumping to her Question #3

Do you eat/drink while reading? If so, do you have some favorite reading snacks?

I almost always have a drink of some kind by me when I’m reading.  What that drink is depends on the weather and time of day.  More often than not it is either a cup of coffee or a bottle of water.  
As for snacks, well I used to joke that I preferred hard back books because they were easier to read /hold onto and eat…..ha ha!  I have been known to read right through a meal if I am alone, laying said book on table and reading, eating, etc etc.  I can snack, like M&M’s are always a handy snack, not messy etc.   I wish I didn’t like to snack…….but that is another issue!


In other book/reading news, I bought a Kindle, I love it!!  I am currently reading a manuscript of a very dear friend, I was able to send it to my Kindle and it’s very pleasant reading.  I still own other books I’m finishing, but this is fun new stuff.


I hope you will share your reading/drinking/snack habits with me!

    I love drinking a cup of coffee with a book. But, I also can be known to drink a soda and eat trail mix as well. I think because I usually read late at night or while riding in the car, I don’t usually eat.

    So glad you are enjoying your Kindle.

    Like you I read whenever I am eating alone – usually breakfast and lunch. If I’m reading at times other than meal times, I usually don’t snack. It’s too difficult to manage for me. But I usually have a glass of water next to me.

    a) I haven’t done any pleasure reading this semester. I used to be able to, but this year has just been too hectic. I can’t even think about pleasure reading without feeling paranoid that I’m forgetting to do something for school. With that said, I hope to get a LOT of reading down over break.

    b) I’m still trying to decide between the Nook and the Kindle. Something in my gut tells me to get the Nook, even though the Kindle has passage-sharing features with Twitter and Facebook that I’d really like to have. Although, with Amazon’s recent scandal of allowing an author to sell an e-book that supposedly aids pedophiles in gaining courtship from kids, I don’t feel comfortable supporting Amazon by buying their products, anymore.

    I’ve always got a book nearby – right now it’s “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks”. I highly recommend it.

    I like to have something to drink – hot coffee is choice #1, followed by hot tea, iced tea, or pop over ice.

    I love my Kindle too! I just need to use it more. I haven’t been doing much reading lately and I miss it. When I am reading I always have a drink nearby–tea, coffee, seltzer–like you it depends on the weather.

    I have a terrible habit of eating dry cereal (usually granola) straight from the box while I’m reading…such a bad habit. šŸ™‚

    And hey, I just wrote a blog post about my favorite books, in case you’d like to take a look-see. *smiles*

    I am so envious of people who have Kindles…perhaps one day I will have one of my very own. šŸ™‚

    Oh, and FYI–my husband’s selling his humor book on Kindle for $2.99…I guarantee if you buy it, you will laugh! šŸ™‚ It’s at: http://www.amazon.com/Dropped-Head-Untreated-Insanity-ebook/dp/B003NX7MD4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1289871434&sr=8-1

    Hope all is well with you and your family! šŸ™‚

    When I eat lunch on my screened in porch, I read – but’s that only Spril through September when the sun warms my porch.

    Currently, I’m reading my book club selection, “Cutting for Stone.”
    Lately, another favorite thing to do is to listen to books on tape that I borrow from the library. I do this while folding laundry or driving around doing errands.
