Thursday Tea (Sept. 29): The 14th Dalai Lama: A Manga Biography

The book: I’ve been distracted lately by reading stuff online (and playing video games), so much so that I haven’t really been reading any books for the past week and a half. I’m making my way through Agatha Christie’s autobiography, sure, but not with any sort of speed. I’m trying to be okay with not being in the mood for books right now, but it’s still a little worrying.

To cheer myself up, I’ve decided to read a book that won’t require me to spend a lot of time on it (leaving me more time to browse online, ha): The 14th Dalai Lama: A Manga Biography.

I think when October starts I’m going to take a small blogging break, for like a week or so. Hopefully after that I’ll be more in the mood for reading/reviewing/etc.

The tea: I found some chocolate mint oolong tea I forgot I had! It’s…interesting.

Do they go together? I suppose technically I should be drinking Darjeeling tea instead, since the Dalai Lama apparently likes it. Oh well.

  1. I’ve always wondered what Chocolate flavoured tea tastes like. I’ve nearly picked some up in the past, but then always figured that if I want something chocolaty I’d just have hot chocolate.

    1. I’m thinking hot chocolate is the way to go. Every chocolate-infused tea I’ve had has been really weird, and not in a good way.

  2. A blogging break might work. I always find it hard to leave the blog behind and feel guilty, but I know I shouldn’t. And I’m a fervent advocate of others taking breaks when life demands it.

    Also, chocolate-y tea never really works for me.

    1. I’ve got a small stack of review books now that, if I don’t read them soon, I’m going to feel very guilty about later on. 🙁 That’s probably the worst part of taking a blogging break, the falling behind on “obligations.”
