Top Ten Tuesday ~ Favorite Things to Eat While Reading

It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday! Don’t forget to head over to That Artsy Reader Girl and join the linkup!


I want to say I don’t have a favorite thing to eat or drink while reading… but it’s not for the reason you might think. It sounds like a good thing — it sounds like that means I don’t eat or drink while reading. But the truth is that I will eat or drink practically anything while reading. I read too much to be picky. The only real exception is sticky stuff or anything that will do obvious damage to my book. So instead of doing this topic as written, I’m going to add a word in front and will do it that way instead:

LEAST Favorite Things to Eat While Reading

  1. Ice cream cones
  2. Pizza (unless it’s cold leftover pizza, that’s less messy)
  3. Cheetos
  4. Fondue (any kind — while oil fondues tend to splatter and could damage the book, the chocolate and cheese kinds are both still rather messy)
  5. Spaghetti with red sauce
  6. Chocolate that’s bigger than single-bite-sized (because it melts)
  7. Steak (it doesn’t really pose a threat to the book, but unless I’m using an e-reader it’s really hard to cut the steak without losing my place)
  8. Corn on the cob
  9. Fried chicken
  10. Ribs (or really anything else slathered in BBQ sauce…)

Of course, this list does only include things that I actually eat on occasion. Some of them are more frequently consumed foods than others, but I didn’t include things (like cotton candy) which would fit my “too sticky / messy” requirements and yet which I don’t actually eat.

  1. Thank goodness for ereaders. I can read as long as the food only requires one hand. But half those things you mention don’t fall into that category 😦

    But pizza. I eat the Stouffers french bread, so that is all one handed. Reading, here I come!

  2. We eat steak at least once a week- and it’s definitely hard to cut and read at the same time! Lately I’ve given in to cutting my food like a child and just eating it one handed. Lol

  3. Oh my gosh, I love the way you twisted the prompt! Of course, this made me twitch in so many ways. It makes me imagine the worst. Ahhhh. Ice cream + books = no bueno. Well, I mean, that’s pretty much all of these, to be honest lol.
