Thursday Tea (June 2): Nilda

The book: Whoops! I’m actually quite distracted today because I’ve begun listing things for sale on eBay in hopes to get rid of some things (and make some dosh) before I try moving in August. So I haven’t been reading quite as much today as I might have otherwise!

Nevertheless, I’m currently a bit into Nilda by Nicholasa Mohr, one of my BEA 2011 books. It’s a reprinting– the original was published in 1973– and I’m really excited to be able to read it. It’s about a young Puerto Rican girl living in New York City in the 1940s, and so far I’m enjoying it.

The tea: I discovered a secret stash of Earl Grey my mother hid behind some cans! Ha!

Do they go together? To be honest, not really. It’s summertime in the part of the book I’m currently at, and hot tea just doesn’t go with the descriptions of intense heat described in the book. We’re moving into September in the book now, though, so maybe it’ll be a better match later on.

    1. I used to eBay more than I do now, but I’ve started again mostly because they cut out their listing fees. Yay for less fees! But I also think less people are buying stuff– which is less exciting.
