 Do you EAT while you READ?
Having just returned a book to the library which revealed that the last borrower was fond of Cheetos and chocolate I'm wondering do you EAT when you READ? I will have a cup of tea and maybe a biscuit/cookie but never have stained a page with my messy fingers. :lol:

:thanks2: ,-missyllaneous-

NEVER! I couldn't take the risk of staining a book. Apart from that aspect though, eating takes all my attention.

Eating and Reading are the two things I love ( Not in that order ). But somehow they never gel well for me. But I have found myself with a mug of coffee or green tea while reading. :)

Oh I agree!! Besides, I often re-read some of my books, so I prefer keeping them in perfect condition. I do hate it when I come across greasy marks on second hand books.

Oh dear, food stains on a library book is just nasty. Even with my own books, grease can invite mold growth. I keep magazines in the dining area. That way if I'm alone I can read and even if I spill something the magazines go in the recycle bin eventually anyway.

I can't eat and read. Well, I could, but getting the pages stained/greasy ruins the book.
A cup of coffee or hot chocolate is about as far as I'll go.

I do sometimes, but I usually read in bed or in the bathtub so usually do not eat at those times.

I don't usually eat and read, but I have been on my own at a restaurant before and found that it kind of takes away from the lonely feeling of not having someone to converse with while eating.

No, because I hate food stains on books :x But I eat snacks or drink green tea while I read ebooks on my laptop...

Post Re: Do you EAT while you READ?
I sometimes have a book with me when I go out to eat with my parents, usually when we're out on the road and such. Usually I eat a sandwich that's not too messy, or stuff that requires a fork, so I have ways of getting around the mess issue. Plus I am obsessed with washing my hands.
