A Reader’s Tribute to Coffee Mugs

2

My weekdays are pretty busy, especially the morning time. Starting early at 5 in the morning, I rush through the chores for 3 hours which includes sending my daughters off to school and husband to office. I call these 3 hours of my weekdays as ‘Hurricane Time’ 😉 But, I eagerly wait to do them… Do you know why? It’s because of the ‘Me Time’ which I find on the other side of 3 hours!

Ah! It is total bliss. Sitting on the couch, near my window, with the morning sun peeping in… it’s my favorite time to read. And I reach paradise when I take a sip of my coffee. I do not know any other happier moment as a reader. For me, books and coffee are inseparable.

My coffee has played an important role in keeping my passion for reading intact. And my coffee couldn’t have been close to me without my mug. They are silent witnesses to my journey of adventures to various worlds created within the books. So, here is a tribute to all the coffee mugs who help readers like me, in following their passion.

As per their individual tastes, Coffee mugs vary from reader to reader.

Some love tall mugs and some love small. They come in all sizes and patterns. Let me introduce you to few which caught my eye… 

The minion coffee mug pair. The characters and their quotes just bring a smile on one’s faces.

One of my favorites: A coffee mug in the form of a camera lens. 


This cute hand – crafted mug can be an awesome reading companion.
A self-stirring mug for those who are way too into the book and do not even have time for stirring 😉

For those who do not want their mug to be touched by anyone else 😛

The design of this mug surely makes it unique.

I am an ardent lover of coffee. Cafe Latte is my personal favourite. I consider my coffee nad coffee mug as an important part of my life as a reader.

Do you consider coffee mugs as your reading companions? If yes, do you have a preference?

PEEK-A-BOO:

While investigating the murder of an American missionary in Ethiopia, rookie State Department lawyer Jaqueline Quartermane becomes obsessed with a magical word square found inside an underground church guarding the tomb of the biblical Adam.

Drawn into a web of esoteric intrigue, she and a roguish antiquities thief named Elymas must race an elusive and taunting mastermind to find the one relic needed to resurrect Solomon’s Temple. A trail of cabalistic clues leads them to the catacombs of Rome, the crypt below Chartres Cathedral, a Masonic shaft in Nova Scotia, a Portuguese shipwreck off Sumatra, and the caverns under the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

Intertwined with this modern mystery-thriller, a parallel duel is waged:
The year is 1452. One of the most secretive societies in history, Portugal’s Order of Christ, is led by a reclusive visionary, Prince Henry the Navigator. He and his medieval version of NASA merged with the CIA scheme to foil their archenemies, the Inquisitor Torquemada and Queen Isabella of Castile, who plan to bring back Christ for the Last Judgment by ridding the world of Jews, heretics, and unbelievers.

Separated by half a millennium, two conspiracies to usher in the Tribulations promised by the Book of Revelation dovetail in this fast-paced thriller to expose the world’s most explosive secret: The true identity of Christopher Columbus and the explorer’s connection to those now trying to spark the End of Days.
