Do you have a favorite "must-have" drink?

Another weekend of discovering other great blogs to read!  This week's "blog hop," coordinated by the wonderful Crazy For Books, has a funny question.

What do you like to drink while reading, reviewing, and/or blogging?

I'm sure that people would expect someone living in Seattle to say coffee, but I am actually not a coffee drinker.  Can't stand the stuff, or the smell on my clothes if I've spent time in a coffee shop chatting with friends.  I know it's strange, and I'm sure that I can get thrown out of the Northwest for such sacrilege.

Honestly, I'm not sure that I really need anything to drink to get me through reading a book, or writing reviews or blog posts.  I couldn't make it through the school day without some sort of fizzy, caffeinated beverage however.  I've been known to pilfer a colleague's secret stash of Diet Cokes.  In a pinch, a nice hot chocolate will also do the trick.

What about you?  Do you have a secret, or not so secret, beverage vice?

Happy HOP! I drink alot of water during the day while at work. When I finally get home I switch to diet soda with the hope it'll keep me awake long enough to get all my reading and blogging done. Happy reading!

Come HOP by and visit

I am with you. I do not appreciate coffee at all. I can't even walk into a coffee shop like Starbucks without starting to gag. What astonished me is that everyone says that coffee smells better than it tastes. That is not a glowing endorsement.

Give me Diet Pepsi all the time!

Just hopping by and following! I'm looking forward to your reviews. Love that you're a middle school librarian--I teach 8th grade & have student reviews on my blog, too!

I always have to have something to drink near me, usually Diet Coke or water. Or a Barq's Root Beer if I'm feeling adventurous!

Have a great weekend!

I don't normally drink while reading because I worry about spilling! While blogging, though, I'll sometimes have tea or juice.

Here from the hop!

I hate coffee too. I cannot stand the smell or taste so I hear you on that.

I love diet coke (in an unhealthy way)!

It is so cool that you are a Jr. High Librarian. I am going to look around at more of your reviews!

I get the same thing here being so close to wine country. Problem is, I don't especially like the stuff. Oh well.

Happy weekend. I don't drink while reading or blogging.

Hopping by! Your blog is so cute!

I need lots of caffeine just to breath... LOL!

Come to see Murphy's Library too.

Just hoppin' on by! <3 I'm a new follower! :)

I would have assumed you were a Seattles Best coffee drinker, haha!

I don't normally drink while reading; I'm afraid of spills! But when I write reviews, I must, must, MUST have a cold glass of Very Vanilla Soymilk with me. It's weird, I know, but I can't write one without it! :P

I grew up in Washington and have never taken a sip of coffee. It's a religious thing, but I don't think I would drink it even if I wasn't Mormon. The stuff smells nasty. I'm more into ice water and Mt. Dew, if I need a pick me up (shhh ... don't tell my bishop!).

You reach for the next book you need,
Another pot of coffee, better brew it strong
But I'm still here to cheer all night long!
