What Would You Eat While Reading This…?

This is an interesting infographic about eating and reading!

Zezee with Books

I was recently contacted by Shari’s Berries, an online retailer of dessert treats such as chocolate-dipped strawberries and cake pops (yum!), to feature an infographic they created that pairs 20 books with desserts.

Pairings range from Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland with tea biscuits and jam to Jack Kerouac’s On the Road with apple pie and ice cream. By the time I was done reading, I was craving the treats and wistful for old books I’ve read like The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis, which was paired with Turkish Delight, of course, and F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby that’s best read with some lemon cake nearby.

Well, don’t let me keep you. Take a look at the infographic and tell me which pairing appeals to you the most.
