Friday Linkups: Dark Saturday
It's Friday linkup time! I'm linking up with the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer, Book Beginnings of Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, and the Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice
This Week's Book Blogger Hop Question
What is your go-to drink and/or snack while reading?
I'm not a big snacker while reading mostly because I tend to get absorbed in my book and not realize that I'm eating until I've finished off the bag of chips or the cookies or whatever without even realizing it! I do love a nice cup of tea while reading though! I'm a big fan of green tea with just a hint of lemon.

"And they've continued."
"Yes. Attack is the right word for it. I wake at night and I know it's coming. It's crouching and it's going to get me."
This is a conversation between Frieda and one of her patients. The description of the panic attack is so vivid I can almost picture something crouching in the corner.
So what do you think? Keep reading? What are your favorite reading snacks?
