Am I the only one that does this? 

When life is too busy leaving little time for adventuring into pages, I tend to collect books that take my fancy till I have a little pile of them. Then, when time allows, I binge read.

It's such an immersive feeling. So satisfying.

I have already read the The Rabbit Back Literature Society on my Kindle on holiday earlier last year. I enjoyed it so thoroughly that I just had to buy a paper copy to cherish and re-read when the time feels right. It may feel strange to some, but I often re-read a well-loved book at different stages in life. My perception seems to alter according to my life and this always makes for interesting reading and understanding of how my own mind works.

Currently, I am spellbound and gladly lost in Saki's Improper Stories, a showcase of short stores which are doing a grand job of taunting my love of the unexpected.  Saki delights with his glorious prose and conversant observations on the absurd subtleties of Edwardian life. Wonderful enjoyed with tea! Though I do have to be careful not to choke on each sip when I find myself laughing out aloud.

Twinings have released a selection of enticing loose leaf pyramid teas a couple of which I found myself buying without a second thought.  The Bollywood Chai Latte and the Nutty Chocolate Assam both go well with a drop or more of milk and are really delicious in a way that soothes away the chill of the season.  Velvety and smooth, sweet without being sugary. Creamy fragrant comfort in a teacup!


  1. I have about 20 books on my bedside table waiting for me to read them, I struggle to make time for reading when there always seem to be something else to do either at home or online haha ! I'm gonna need to get to it if I want to complete my goodreads challenge this year !

  2. Is there anything more wonderful than books and tea? At one time in my life I always had a book on the go, but now that I spend so much of my time writing my own books and articles, I find my reading is more concentrated. I will go months without reading and then read four books in the space of weekend, until I am satisfied and move on with my own work. Isn't that funny?

  3. I LOVE binge-reading books in bed with a cup of tea haha, it's one of my favourite things to do!

  4. Yessss....love to read...just escape and forget the world outside and venture to a new world, amazing times :)) xx

  5. Yes, I binge read too! There are times that I read a few books a month and then comes the lazy months that I don't even charge my Kindle! Last December I spent quite a bit on Amazon buying books for Kindle and a month later, nothing. I was sent a book by my doctor (who happens to be the author) called Good Bye Iran and was about to start reading when the lazy season hit.

  6. i think i was worse. i collected books and they sat there for years without being read! eecks!!

  7. I'm the same when it comes to re-reading books :') I have one in particular that i've read at least 7 times now haha
    also, really need to get my paws on that chai latte!!!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note, they are the stuff that keeps us going.
