I usually spotlight my audiobook on Thursdays, but I'm still listening to An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon. I'm not sick of Clare and Jamie, but you might be.
I started reading The Magicians by Lev Grossman. I've heard it described as Harry Potter for grownups, and so far I think that's fairly accurate. Since I'm only on page 10, I really can't say too much about the plot. My review will be up on Sunday, though, because I plan to be done in time for my book club meeting that afternoon.
The Tea. I'm drinking Adagio Tea's Pu Erh Dante. I cannot pronounce it at all, but I've discovered I really like it. "Black tea from the Yunnan region of China. Pu Erh tea, perhaps the most esoteric of Chinese varieties, has a pronounced earthy aroma and taste. It is very popular in China due to its notoriety as a slimming diet tea." I don't know about the diet part, but I've had two cups each afternoon this week.
The Assessment. Because Quentin Coldwater lives in modern times in the United States, he could at least get this tea. Maybe brilliant, nerdy types are attracted to it. (Hey! No wise cracks!) I'd like to think that he and his friends might sip a cup while doing their homework.
What's on your reading list this week? And what's in that mug or glass?

Thursday Tea is hosted by Anastasia at Birdbrain(ed) Book Blog. Here's how it works: Tell us what tea you are drinking (and if you like it). And then tell us what book are you reading (and if you like it). Finally, tell us if they go together.
