Share-a-Tea 2019 Reading Challenge


share a tea challengeThis is the first check-in post for the Share-a-Read 2019 Reading Challenge.

The first book I’m reading for this challenge is Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen. This is the second time to read this book; and I’m not finished reading the book in time for the first post. I’m currently on page 150. So, I’m about half-way through the book.
Elinor is my favorite person in the story. I’m amazed at her strength of character! And, I can relate to her in one specific way: her ability to remain calm in spite of highly emotional and difficult people. I wonder, if in at least a small part, Elinor is drawn to Edward Ferrars because he is not “over the top” dramatic in character. He is a person she can remain calm with, and he is a person she can see herself living with, for the rest of her life. Not all women, and men, want a partner who is a Romeo. Instead, a partner who can fully function as a partner in everyway, who can be depended on, who can be a bestfriend, and who can be counted on to remain rational. These qualities lead to a sense of security and peace.

The tea I’ve picked to companion this challenge is Moroccan Mint, green tea, Stash.

The tea is fresh and minty (that’s not too powerful.)

  1. I meant to start Sense and Sensibility in January but didn’t get around to it. Hoping it’s February 😉 I have tried Stash’s Moroccan Mint and liked it. But I prefer their Peppermint. I can’t count the number of boxes of Peppermint I’ve bought since discovering it 😉
