The Book: On Friday and Saturday as I was getting ready for BEA, I knew I had to listen to something light and fun. I also knew that I was going to have a chance to see Charlaine Harris in New York, so I thought it was time to get back to her Southern Vampire series. Furthermore, I was feeling the pressure because HBO's True Blood is coming back in just a week or so.
In Definitely Dead, the sixth book in the series, Sookie is forced to face some hard truths about her life and family. The action is as good as always and the mystery this time entangles fairies, witches, daemons, weres, and vampires. What's poor Sookie to do? I plan to finish listening while on the train.
The Tea: There were a couple of sunny days this week, so my mind began to turn to iced tea. One of my go-to comfort teas--and a great tea iced--is good ole Constant Comment by Bigalow. According to the company, "This original blend of the finest mountain-grown tea is deliciously flavored with rind of oranges and sweet spice." When I was growing up, Constant Comment was always in the house, and I learned to drink it hot or cold.
The Assessment: Sookie is a born and bred Louisianan. She drinks coffee in the morning, but iced tea is in her glass during hot summer days. Would she drink Constant Comment? I'm not quite sure; she may think it's a bit fancy for her tastes.
What About You? I want to know what you're reading or listening to this week. Is that wine or coffee or tea in your glass/mug?
