If you’ve come looking for tips great books to read and lovely tea to drink, then you’ve most definitely come to the right website.
I’m a book loving penguin. I love the texture, the weight, the smell, and especially the scratchy noise of turning a page when you’re reading in bed and it brushes across the doona. I love books in libraries and books in shops; opening a freshly minted novel or looking at the dog ears from past readers.
I can’t resist reading the last page before I’ve got there. Is that bad?
My favourite living author is Sarah Waters. I’m also pretty enamoured with Margaret Atwood. My favourite Bronte is Anne. I read books by blokes too, from time to time. I don’t really do sci-fi, fantasy or romance very much, although I’m not sure why.
I’m a tea loving penguin. Tea is the perfect accompaniment to a book. But the tea has to be right – none of this lukewarm water and bag of sawdust plopped in. There should be as much ceremony to making and drinking a cup of tea as the occasion can muster. Given so much of the world’s tea is produced by one multinational company, I love to promote boutique teas – they usually taste a whole lot better anyway.
I’m a penguin loving penguin. Penguins are delightfully prone to anthropomorphic imagery. I love the thought of a penguin reading a book, especially if she had to wear glasses like I do.
