Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book meme which was created by The Broke and the Bookish in 2010 and is now hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl. Each Tuesday, Jana assigns a topic and posts their top ten list which fits the topic.
The topic for today is Top Ten Favourite Things to Eat/Drink While Reading, so here goes!
I don’t tend to eat or drink that much while reading but it does depend on where I am at the time.
1. A Cup of Tea
My absolute favourite thing to drink while reading is a cup of tea (I know, I know, typical Brit).
This goes hand-in-hand with my cup of tea, but only on days when I’m not at work and have time to read whilst eating breakfast!
This is one of the only other things I drink while reading, purely because I drink water almost as much as I drink tea.
4. Pasta Salad
At work, I usually go for lunch at the same time as a bunch of women from other offices within the building. If I know I’m going to be eating lunch alone (e.g. people are on holiday or I’m going for lunch at a different time), then I tend to make pasta salad for my lunch that day, so I can eat with one hand and hold my book/phone (if I’m reading an e-book) in the other hand.
I used to love Skittles. I don’t love them as much now, but they still make a good snack for while you’re reading!
Crisps are definitely my weakness snack-wise. While reading, if I am eating something, I prefer it to be something which I can eat one-handed, so I can turn the pages with the other hand without ruining them, so crisps are ideal for this.
This is like the healthier version of eating crisps while reading. I like all of the above and they’re all the perfect size for snacking on while reading!
I do try not to eat sweets and I have been pretty successful but sometimes, I do like having some Haribo sweets to eat while reading. My favourites are Tangfastics.
9. Strawberry/Chocolate Milk
This isn’t something I drink regularly but when I do drink it, it’s usually while reading. It always reminds me of the Charlie and Lola series, which I used to love.
The ultimate reading snack – especially with a cup of tea! Particular favourites include Jaffa Cakes, Dark Chocolate Digestives and Rich Tea Biscuits.
