How-To Book and Breakfast

“Why are breakfast foods breakfast foods? Like why don’t we have curry for breakfast”?

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And why not to recharge mentally at the same time?  If I have the time and I don’t have to go anywhere, I love to read books in the morning with coffee. When I have the time, I love to go to some small coffee shop. I started to read The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. Now, I have reached the halfway of the book and I am not sure what to think of it but I am really happy it’s fictional.

“But it is the nature of stars to cross, and never was Shakespeare more wrong than when he has Cassius note, ‘The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars / But in ourselves.”
― John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

The Fault In Our Stars  tells a story of 16 year old cancer patient Hazel who attends a support group where she meets and falls in love with 17 year old Augustus. So far I have enjoyed the plot but I wonder if the book is that kind of one that it makes you like it because it has lots of super nice quotable lines,  and melancholic plot but fascinating and funny teenagers? Well I guess I will find out when I finish the book.

How- To Book & Breakfast (read while having breakfast )

1. Pick a great place that you like, preferably some cozy corner by the window, like one at Wayne’s Coffee Forum  (I chose this place because it has lovely atmosphere and friendly service. In case you want to visit the address is:  Simonkatu 8, 00100 Helsinki, Finland) Pick a book you know is good , or the one being  currently being discussed everywhere, or one of your favorite ones.
2. As coffee person, check that in case you  go to a coffee shop, see that it offers good quality coffee like Wayne’s  (and mugs that are the right size! ). Applies to tea drinkers.
3. If you eat, eat first and then have another coffee mug with the book. Careful, you don’t want to damage the book (or worse e-reader).
4. Morning with a book has a tendency to turn into an afternoon with a book…
5. Don’t pick anything too difficult to read, it’s morning after all.

  1. Post Scriptum,
    Yes, so having read the book, I doubt I will want to go to movies…
    Last 30 pages were killing me. The book was highly quotable, Augustus was just wonderful and type of character you insantly like. Quite short my ereader claimed TFIOS was 200 pages. Do not read if you are very emotional. I would rate this book 7.5/10, tempted to give less (not because it was bad but it wasn’t that outstanding either). Sweet read though.

  2. I haven’t read the book,but I can tell that your review is objective! :)
    Too many people were calling it ”the best book ever”…

    And great pics btw! Sadly there isn’t a coffee forum in my country where you can sit and read something while sipping on a coffee.
    Your Kindle looks sumptuous too! (That’s quite a compliment from someone who doesn’t like eBooks) :)

    1. Thank you for commenting! :)

      Ahaha definitely not “the best book ever”, not worst either but let’s say I don’t get people who buy t-shirts: “okay.” – “okay.” The story itself was sweet…

      Thank you! Got this Sony Reader as gift, I like it as my bags are lighter now. Paper books are still the best though.

    1. Patio must be great when the sun is shining! :) Though, I disagree as I don’t like reading outside, haha, weather is difficult and mosquitos like me too much.

  3. Loved the “Fault in Our Stars” so much I’m afraid to see the movie! Morning reading is usually just picking up the book from where I dropped it on my chest when I fell asleep… grabbing my glasses and going again. Who needs breakfast? LOL!

    1. Thank you for your comment! :) Well as you loved the book, I would warmly recommend Les Mis if you haven’t read it. Ahaha :D hey that could be something to write about… “How-To Sleep With Books” xD I can’t live without coffee :o
