I have found an interesting correlation between my tea consumption and the amount of books I read. I finish a book every two days. That is a lot of tea! ;)

I always love a hot beverage when I curl up with a book. I love green tea!

Tea, Coffee, or hot chocolate for winter reading. Soda, lemonade or ice tea/water for summer reading. Are my go to drinks but have enjoyed a nice mixed drink or glass of wine a time or two.

It depends on the type of season it is. If it's winter then I usually enjoy a cup of coffee or hot chocolate with whipped cream on it while curling up with a good book. I have gotten pretty good at making chai tea lattes as well, and those are pretty good to have while reading too. If it is summer, then I usually enjoy a soda or iced tea with reading. Either way, I always have to have some sort of beverage while I am reading.

Winter reading is always hot chocolate and tea. Warmer weather iced tea, fruit juice, Pepsi. However, reading outside during the summer is always water.

I always have two drinks with me at the same time. I am weird like that. Tea on one side and Coke on the other.

It is so interesting that the time of year and location makes an impact on what people drink while reading. :P

I like iced coffee any time of the year!

Also homemade hot cocoa with marshmallows during the winter, and soda or juice during the other seasons.

I'm a disgrace and could never really get into tea.

Definitely hot tea or hot chocolate in the winter but sweet tea or flavored water in the summer. I have to use a big glass because once I start reading, I don't want to stop!

I am a coffee and tea drinker, but prefer tea when reading. A cup of tea and a good book seem to go together.
