Many books, actually! I love to read. SO MUCH. :D

-Anything by J.R.R. Tolkien. I love his writing style and the world he created. Middle Earth is so fascinating and complex that every time I reread his works, I learn something new about it.

-Anything by Murakami Haruki. He's one of my favorite authors, and his books are very relatable while also being completely surreal. They're interesting and crazy and just AWESOME. So I read them over and over. :mrgreen:

-The "Animorphs" and "Remnants" series by K.A. Applegate. Yep, even though they're kids' books and I probably grew out of them ten years ago, if not more. The plots are still really good, and "Remnants" can definitely hold its own with some of the adult-level science-fiction I've read. (Also, both series are very nostalgic for me because they turned me into the sci-fi nerd I am today.)

-Although it's not technically "literature", "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure" by Araki Hirohiko. This is a manga, which is basically Japanese comics. The series started in the 1980s and is still running. The art is gorgeous, the plot is amazing, and the characters are incredibly well developed.

And now for tea: I had Yunnan black tea this morning, tons of iced green tea this afternoon, and now I'm boiling water for a Pau d'Arco tisane.

For the last several decades, it has been the LotR trilogy and even the Hobbit. I go back and read them every several years or so. Otherwise, I read once.

Great TeaDay beginning with YM LE with the Mrs. Next up Yama no Ocha organic, and finishing up with some randon karigane of unknown origin.
