Fall Into Reading 2010: Question #3

This year as part of the Fall Into Reading Challenge, Katrina at Callapidder Days has questions for us during the Fall.  I personally love this type of thing because it gives me something to post about and I love reading things about other people and their reading habits.

The first question and other bloggers' answers can be found here.

Do you eat and/or drink while you’re reading? Or do you keep food and liquids far away from your books?

I mainly snack when I have some chocolates before bed while reading. This involves Dove Dark Chocolate Squares (2) or a Ghiridelli Dark Chocolate (60%) Square and a Ghiridelli Dark Chocolate with the creamy mint center, depending on what I have on hand. 

For drinks, I can always be found with one by my side while reading, whether in my chair, on the front porch swing or outside in my backyard chair.  Sometimes herbal teas when I am at home during the cool months, sometimes beer or other malt beverage in the evening during the warmer months (Mike's Hard Lemonade is my personal favorite). Diet 7-Up can be found in hand in the evenings, Diet Mountain Dew during the day and a cup of Caffeine Free International Foods French Vanille Latte with Hershey's chocolate syrup and whipped cream added, yummy - that is my present addiction.  I'm not a coffee drinker but make it less and less like coffee and I'm there :)  I also almost always have a cup of Sleepytime tea while eating my chocolates before bed.

Detailed enough for you - I have eclectic drinking habits, but my chocolates are my pleasure - it's really the only snacking I do (besides nibbles of what is left of the kids foods - I have to quit that nasty habit!)

Mmm, I love the Dove chocolate squares! Usually when I read I have tea or coffee with me depending on the weather :)

It depends on whether i own the book or not. If i own the book i'm typically fine with eating and drinking while eating. If i don't i'm afraid to damage the book so i keep all edibles and liquids away.
