About the book bender
Hello there. So glad you’re here.
The idea for this blog came about in June of 2010 after a particularly harrowing read of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. A natural scaredy-cat, I read myself to sleep only to find myself wide awake at 2 a.m. and terrified of vampires.
The resulting insomnia prompted the idea (among much less lucid thoughts) of pairing literature with food and drinks (how perfect are Bloody Marys for Dracula?).
This is my experiment as your literary sommelier. I’ll be writing about food and writing pieces, both short and long. I hope this serves as a jumping-off point for book clubs, morning-coffee reads, gray afternoons and those precious hours reserved for pleasure reading.
