Books/Reading & Coffee

Ok, I must write a post about this, because I really feel like I’m missing out on something here.

You know how books & coffee are a “thing” now? Like, they go together. If you read books, you apparently must drink coffee. There are sooooo many pics & memes & quotes & phrases talk about “books & coffee” being perfect.

Well, I don’t like coffee!!

Every time I see one of these memes, or a gif with the inevitable caption about the harmony between coffee and reading, it just makes me depressed. I want to be like “oh yeah, that’s me, I love books…” but then it’s like “…but I hate coffee. Shoot, I’m a looser. Maybe I should start drinking coffee…”

Seriously, everyone seems to like coffee, in the book world. I hear sooooo many authors talk about taking a break with a cup of coffee, and writing or reading a book. Readers are the same way – coffee and a good book. It’s like a special club I can’t get into, because my tongue will fall off.

Me and my tea or juice (or more often than not, water) will just have to sit on the sidelines, wishing we were cool enough to be in the “coffee club” with the kool kids. Coffee is the shit, and I’m incapable of swallowing it, without a major gag-fest.

Book people like coffee. Writers, authors, & readers alike. *sigh*
Either that, or wine.
